The Health and Safety Executive has published a new risk assessment leaflet which redraws its guidance on how to control dangers in the workplace.

It is designed for usage by employers, managers and safety representatives. The revised leaflet aims to help those tasked with responsibility for health and safety identify, assess and control risks associated with workplace hazards.

The new guidance replaces ‘Five steps to risk assessment’. According to the HSE: “If you have previously used ‘Five steps’ to carry out your own risk assessment there is no need to repeat it.”

You should, however, review “your risk assessment if you think it is no longer valid or if there are any significant changes”.
