As stated in Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, all employers must make suitable and sufficient assessment of risks. Where 5 or more people are employed, the significant findings of these Risk Assessments must be recorded. We can help you with this. We don’t just provide a set of generic documents; we work with your team to produce accurate and meaningful Risk Assessments which will assist your team in working safely and avoiding accidents. Our main aims are to ensure that, as well as your organisation being compliant with all legislation, your team go home safely at the end of their working day.
Risk Assessment and Method Statement together is a consolidated document commonly referred to as ‘RAMS’. If you are working on the site of a client, they will normally ask for your RAMS. In association with the foreman/lead worker on this task, we can produce this document for you. We understand what the client will be looking for and can make sure that you comply with their requirements, letting you focus on getting the job done.
Fire Risk Assessment
Section 9 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires the responsible person to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of risk. We can act as your responsible person. Our lead consultant has a Fire Risk Assessor Certificate accredited by the Institute of Fire Safety Managers (IFSM).
Regulation 6 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 requires employers to make an assessment of risk to health created by working with substances which can be hazardous to health. Most businesses will use substances which are covered by this legislation and require COSHH assessments to be in place. It may sound difficult, even confusing, but we have the knowledge and experience to make this process simple.
Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002
If your Company uses, produces, transports or stores dangerous substances, then you have a legal responsibility to undertake a risk assessment following the principles of DSEAR. A general summary (from HSE website) is quoted as: Dangerous substances are any substances used or present at work that could, if not properly controlled, cause harm to people as a result of a fire or explosion or corrosion of metal. They can be found in nearly all workplaces and include such things as solvents, paints, varnishes, flammable gases, such as liquid petroleum gas (LPG), dusts from machining and sanding operations, dusts from foodstuffs, pressurised gases and substances corrosive to metal. Our lead Consultant is qualified in DSEAR and Hazardous Area Classification.
