The technical bit…
Health & Safety Risk Assessments address the requirements of Regulation 3 of the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which include recommendations
for required remedial actions, and ongoing monitoring and control measures. The Regulations also require the responsible person/body to devise and implement
safety measures as identified in the Risk Assessment. Communal areas of managed properties are deemed a workplace, and therefore attract the requirements
of the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
The assessments, observations and recommendations made in Health & Safety Risk Assessments are only pertinent to the conditions at the time of the assessment.
Health & Safety Risk assessments should be carried out and reviewed ’Regularly’. The frequency of the review period for
on-going Health & Safety Risk Assessments is dependent on the Health and Safety management, and the severity and likelihood of risks and hazards that may have been identified.
The risk assessment report should include an overview audit for relevant legal requirements indicating whether the client is complying with Health & Safety
legislation and guidance or not.
The content of Health & Safety Risk Assessment reports can only be based upon the information and access at the property provided at the time of the assessment visit.
Any recommendations or advice in risk assessment reports should be based only upon evidence seen.
Risk Assessments are based upon an interpretation of current Acts, Regulations and Approved Codes of Practices;
however, these can only be authoritatively interpreted by Courts of Law.
What to do…
Ensure that a Health & Safety Risk Assessment is carried out for the communal areas of managed properties, and that it is carried out ‘Regularly’ as required.
Ensure that the Health & Safety Risk Assessment is carried out by an independent and competent company/person to avoid unnecessary issues being recommended for commercial gain.
Ensure that all actions are attended to in line with the priority levels for each hazard or non-compliance identified, and the action section is completed to confirm this.
Where possible consider combining the Health & Safety Risk Assessment and Fire Risk Assessment in one report for ease of management and cost effectiveness.
