A Risk Assessment is a thorough look at your workplace to identify those things, situations, processes, etc. that may cause harm, particularly to people. After identification is made, you evaluate how likely and severe the risks are, and then decide what measures should be in place to effectively prevent or control the harm from happening.
Advanced Risk Assessment involves an overview of the key principles that influenced the chronological development of Risk Management over the years. Understanding incident causation, tools for Risk Assessment, application of Measurement Techniques, implementation of effective risk control, legal compliance, company culture, change management and Job Analysis are all key areas to be taken into account in order to be effective in the areas of Risk Assessment/Management.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act of Trinidad and Tobago 2004 fully came into effect in August 2007 and, under the General Duties clause of the act, employers are required to "Ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, the safety, health and welfare at work of all his employees" section 6 (1).
Section 13 A further states that:
"(1) Every employer shall make a suitable and sufficient annual assessment of-
(a) the risks to the safety and health of his employees to which they are exposed whilst they are at work; and
(b) the risks to the safety and health of persons not in his employment arising out of or in connection with the environmental impact of his undertaking, for the purpose of identifying what measures are necessary for compliance with this Act or any other statutory provision."
It is a legal requirement that all employers conduct annual Risk Assessments of their operations to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all employees. It is impossible to remove all risk from any organisation but it is essential that all organisations effectively manage the risks they face.
