Session 4: Risk Assessments

We need risk assessments for:

  • areas, eg depot, office, bus etc
  • activities, eg driving, fuelling, cleaning

A risk assessment needs to:

  • Identify Hazards
  • Identify who or what may be at risk
  • Assess Severity and Probability with no control measures (Severity x Probability = Risk Score)
  • Outline Control Measures
  • Assess Severity and Probability with control measures in place (Severity x Probability = Risk Score)
  • Communicate Control Measures
  • Be reviewed periodically (each time/annually/following an incident)
