What is it?
The 'Risk Assessment Template' is a '5' page document formulated to assist the user carry out an assessment using hand tools. The method of inspection is one of a procedural examination of the job route to identify, assess and record risks with a view to put control measures in place, when recorded on the actions template supplied. The gas operative would generally carry out a 'Walk the job' assessment of the risks.
When would you use it?
Risk assessments should be completed for all tasks undertaken by every company / organisation. A risk assessment should not only be completed prior to commencement of each task but also should be reviewed periodically, when process's change, new employees, new substances or places of work etc.
Why would you use it?
You would use the 'Risk Assessment Template' to ensure that everyone exposed to potential risks are protected by control measures. Within the risk assessment, the competent person carrying out the examination should be able to identify risks and put in place adequate controls to remove or reduce them.
Risk assessments assist organisations to protect themselves and others exposed to their operational work and environment by the use of an assessment with control actions. Organisations are open to huge penalties, fines and imprisonment if these assessments are not in place and can be easily inspected on request; especially if an accident or injury occurs and the organisation is investigated.
