A risk in the workplace is anything that poses the threat of an incident or accident. In the UK alone, 137 people died from accidents in the workplace through 2016/17. This number could have been significantly reduced by following basic Health & Safety procedure, which should have been put in place after a risk assessment document was completed. Additionally, there were also a further 621,000 injuries recorded in just 12 months.
By analysing and assessing risks, you decrease the chance of any accidents occurring in your workplace. With over 30.4 MILLION working days lost from workplace injuries in the UK alone, you shouldn’t need any other incentive to do your part and complete a quick-and-easy risk assessment!
