Why is it important to carry out a Risk Assessment and prepare a Safety Statement?

  • Emerald SSP

    1. Legal reasons:

    Carrying out a Risk Assessment, preparing a Safety Statement and implementing what you have written down are not only central to any safety and health management system, they are required by law.

  • Emerald SSP

    2. Financial reasons:

    There is considerable evidence, borne out by companies’ practical experiences, that effective safety and health management in the workplace contributes to business success. Accidents and ill-health inflict significant costs, often hidden and underestimated.

  • Emerald SSP

    3. Moral and ethical reasons:

    The process of carrying out a Risk Assessment, preparing a Safety Statement and implementing what you have written down will help employers prevent injuries and ill-health at work.

 How we engage with you.

Our clients input to the process of compiling an accurate Safety Statement is key. Firstly we obtain information regarding the client such as; sector of work, description of works, equipment/machinery used, number of employees. Once this information has been established we take our client though a hazard identification questionnaire which allows us to refine our risk identification and controls to suit. From here we begin compiling the Safety Statement.

The more information our clients can provide us with the stronger the Safety Statement becomes. Other documents that will build on the Safety Statement to form a solid heath and safety portfolio include; insurance details, training certification for employees and procedures for use of equipment and work.
