Risk Assessments

HSE has launched a draft document for comment with a small amendment to their risk assessment advice.

You may already have documents, such as guidance to employees (including HSE guidance), method statements, data sheets etc that can serve as your record. You do not need to duplicate these.

Insurers and contractors may ask for more detailed paperwork than the law requires. Ask if you are not sure (it might be, for instance, to defend any compensation claims). One way of checking if you are being asked to go beyond what the law requires, is to contact HSE’s Myth Buster Challenge Panel (www.hse.gov.uk/myth).

I think that is pretty much good sense and many of us will have been using a similar approach for years.
