Risk Assessment

A risk assessment audit is carried out for each site by the Operation Manager, the Supervisor and the Cleaner. The process followed is:

Identification - Identify all risks that could cause injury or illness in the workplace.

Assessment - Assess the risks and prioritise in order of high risk to low risk.

Control - Identify and implement the best method of controlling identified risks.

  • Training is an essential element for a safe working environment.
  • Safety performance reviews are a continuing process.
