explain how risk assessment can help address dilemmas between an individual's rights and health and safety concerns.
When you're an employer, great responsibility is placed on your hands to ensure the health and safety of your employees. Running a business or organization is not just about getting the right people. [ [ Your responsibilities don?t end there because you still need to conduct a risk assessment to find out the potential harms or dangers that the workplace involves. This is a requirement of the law
and failure to comply can lead to closure of the business or possible lawsuits in the future when your employees encounter health and safety problems. In any kind of business, there will always be risks. Not all risks are harmful but there are once that can really cause great harm when not acted upon immediately. With the right preventive measures, you can control such risks or stop them from ever happening. Always bear in mind that your business will not run without your precious workforce, so you need to keep them safe and healthy at all times. It would be impossible to eliminate all the risks and the law doesn?t expect employers to address them all. Just pick the ones that can case potential harm and minimize other risks that you can identify. The Options The employer can conduct the risk assessment or you can rely on the services of a professional. The risk assessment is simply an evaluation of the workplace and the type of business you?re running. After risks are identified, you will now come up with ways to control them to prevent accidents, ill health, damaged machinery, and increased insurance costs. You can follow these steps in order to conduct the evaluation. The first thing you have to do is identify potential hazards. Identify the persons that can be harmed and the accident can happen. Calculate the involved risks and determine the precautionary measures to undertake. All findings should be recorded and proper implementation should follow. Updates are often necessary as the business expands, so from time to time, review is necessary. You don?t have to complicate matters. For instance, as employer you are aware that some of your employees have heavy loads to carry which can lead to possible back injuries. ] ]

Risk assessment can help address dilemmas between an individual's rights and health and safety concerns by mere employers must ensure that policies and procedures
are in place to protect home carers while they are at
work by:
• Carrying out suitable risk assessments that take
account of the real risks faced by home care
workers
• Providing health and safety training and information
as well as refresher training so that care workers
are confident in carrying out their duties
• Ensuring that a reporting system is set up that
encourages care workers to report and record
incidents and accidents
• Monitoring, evaluating and reviewing practices and
procedures on a regular basis.

Employers’ legal duties
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act (HASAWA)
1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at
Work Regulations (MHSW) 1999, employers have a
legal duty to assess all risks to the health and safety
of employees.


If the risk assessment shows that it is
not possible for the work to be done safely, then other
arrangements must be put in place.
