explain the importance of carrying out a risk assessment
Weegy: Risk assessments need not be complex. It is usually a straightforward but conscientious study of anything in the work environment that might hurt someone. [ Once the assessment is finished, managers review the identified risks and decide the appropriate action to prevent accidents and injuries. The final task is then to create and act upon a risk assessment plan. All of this is a legal requirement. An employer is obliged to keep workers and the public safe as far as "reasonably practicable", although the law does not demand the eradication of all possibility of risk. Definitions There are two key definitions to risk assessment work. Hazard A hazard is an actual or potential danger or risk. In other words, it is an item (such as a toxic chemical) or a process (roofing a building, for instance) that may lead to an accident. Risk A risk is a situation that involves an exposure to a hazard and carries the possibility that something unpleasant may occur. The risk of injury may be low or high, and the result of the harm may be slight or grave. ] (More)
