As a business owner, conducting a risk assessment at your workplace is very important. In the context of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), risk assessment is the process of determining and identifying the risk and hazards based on severity and likelihood of work injuries, property damage ill-health etc. Some companies or organisations conduct a risk assessment in their workplace because it’s a legal requirement and there is no way to get around that. But when you come to know about the real benefits provided by risk assessment in your workplace then it helps motivate you to actually do it. Here are some of the main benefits that you receive by conducting hazard identification and risk assessment:

  • Identify and control potential hazards in your workplace.
  • Create awareness among your workers and this can be used as a training tool as well.
  • Reduce injuries and illness in the workplace.
  • Set risk assessment and management standards depending upon safe practices and legal requirements.
