|HAZARD||WHO MIGHT BE HARMED||IS MORE CONTROL NEEDED TO CONTROL THE RISK|
|Look for hazards that you could reasonably expect to result in significant harm under the conditions at your plot. Use the following examples as a guide.||There is no need to list individuals by name – just think about groups of people doing similar work or who may be affected e.g||For hazards the hazards listed, do the precautions already taken|
Chemicals (e.g battery acid)
Moving parts of machinery (e.g blades)
Work at height (e.g from mezzanine floors)
Vehicles (e.g fork-lift trucks)
Dust (e.g from grinding)
People sharing your workplace
Members of the public
Pay particular attention to:
Staff with disabilities
Lone workers – They may be more vulnerable
|Meet the standards set by legal requirements?
Comply with recognised industry standards?
Represent good practice?
Reduce risk as far as reasonably practicable?
To ensure safety have you:
Adequate information, instruction or training?
Adequate systems or procedures?
If so, then the risks are adequately controlled, but you need to indicate the precautions you have in place.
Where the risk is not adequately controlled indicate what more you need to do (the ‘action list’)
|Fire Hazard e.g combustible materials (rubbish, flammable substances, LPG etc) and ignition sources (flames, smoking etc)||As above||Means of escape: fire detection and alarms. Fire fighting equipment and fire evacuation plan.|
