What are the legal requirements for risk assessments?

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires organisations to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of its employees.

This means taking reasonable steps to protect employee’s safety and health.

Various regulations have been published the provide specific guidance on how the HSE Act should be applied.

One example are the Managing Health and Safety Regulation 1999.  Here employers are required to undertake risk assessments and if you employ 5 or more people your risk assessment must be written down.
