Action for improvement

1. Why policy in important?
The health & Safety policy of an organization is an very important document
because it sets the aim of an organization regards with the health and safety and who is
responsible for achieving the aim and how the aim are to be achieved.

8. Outline the key stages of risk assessment. Identifying the issues to be considered in each
There are five stages of risk assessment they are:
Identification of hazard
Identification of people
Evaluation of hazard
Recording significant findings

Identification of hazard.
Hazard is something that has potential to cause harm. The first stage of risk
analysis identification of hazard.

Methods for identifying hazards are:
Manufacture information
Task analysis
Previous accident/ incident

The issues to be considered at these stages are:
Type of hazard (Physical, Chemical, Biological, Ergonomics and Psychological)
Effect of hazard (Acute, Chronic)

Identify the people
Once the hazard is identified find people who are going to be affected how they
are going to be affected and how many are going to be affected.

The people who may be affected are:
Maintenance staff
Members of public

The issue to be considered in this stage is.
No. of people affected
How they are going to be affected (individually or in a group)
Presence of vulnerable people like going people, handicapped, pregnant ladies

Evaluation of risk
o After identify the hazard and identifying the people, evaluating the hazard is the
3dr step
o Analysis the hazard into high, medium and low
o Find the hazard is acceptable or control measures needed.
o Check control measures are adequate or not
o Check control measures are needed implement it and bring the risk to acceptable
level as possible.
o The issues to be considered in this stage are.
o Categorizing the risk to high, medium and low
o Control measures are adequate or not
o General hierarchy (Elimination, substitution, engineering, administration or PPE)
o Bring the risk to as low as reasonable practicable level

Recoding of significant finding.
o Significant findings should be recorded to provide
o A statement of hazard
o Extent of risk that they may present
o Action taken to control the risk
o Risk assessment is auditable, Legal requirement as well as it is used for
management review and accident investigation

Issues to be considered in this stage are:
Identification of activity
Identification of group of risk
Evaluating risk and adequate existing control
Action taken for future control
Assessment date
Next review date

Review and update
