Introduction to this document

Risk assessment policy

As part of your health and safety policy, you should identify your arrangements for managing the risk assessment process. Our sample Risk Assessment Policy document will help you to set out your position.

Managing the process

Our Risk Assessment Policy is split into a number of sections, including a general statement which recognises the importance of risk assessment. The second part is a statement on the legal position of risk assessments. The third states that you will undertake a programme of risk assessments. The final part of the document identifies appropriate competencies of potential risk assessors.

Amend to suit your business

Our document covers more tasks than you’re likely to be carrying out in your business. So, all you need to do is remove anything that doesn’t apply directly to you.
