Risk Assessment

Risk assessment is the process of determining the level of risk associated with a work practice, activity, substance and/or piece of equipment. This will assist in the identification and management of hazards that may impact on everyone’s health and safety.

These are a guide only. They must be reviewed and modified in line with your worksite requirements and in consultation with relevant parties.

Conduct a risk assessment when:

  • A work practice changes
  • Prior to purchase and/or use of a new piece of equipment or substance
  • Prior to an activity and/or event eg Gala Day, Sports Day, Fete
  • Prior to hazardous work eg working at heights, construction
  • Change in work environment eg refurbishment or renovation
