As an employer, you must make a ‘suitable and sufficient assessment’ of risks to your employees’ health and safety, and risks to others not in your employment that are created because of your work. As an employer you must assess and control the risks in your workplace. You need to think about what might cause harm to people and decide whether you are doing enough to prevent that harm. If you have five or more employees you must write down what you’ve found.
That record should include:
The hazards (things that may cause harm)
How they may harm people
What you are already doing to control the risks
You must review and update this record, for example if anything changes.
