Are you an employer?
All employers should carry out a systematic general examination of the potential impact caused by their undertakings, their work services and the condition of their premises.
You have specific duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, and other health and safety legislation.
A suitable and sufficient risk assessment must be carried out by a competent person to identify the risks to health, safety and wellbeing of any person arising out of, or in connection with, work or the conduct of your undertaking. It should identify how the risks arise and how they impact on those affected.
Control measures form part of a coherent Health, Safety and Wellbeing policy and approach. You are required by law to reduce those health, safety and wellbeing risks that cannot be prevented or avoided altogether and take account of the way in which work is organised and the working conditions.
As employer, you shall make and give effect to the health, safety and wellbeing arrangements that are appropriate, having regard to the nature of your services and the size of your undertakings, to ensure the effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of the preventive and protective measures, including training, health surveillance, emergency arrangements.

Why to use a registered professional?
If you are required to comply with health and safety legislation, you want peace of mind that the person you engage for advice will assist you diligently in achieving compliance. The professional institutions check the skills, knowledge and experience of the health and safety professionals before granting a membership status and require members to follow a Continual Professional Development plan to ensure their knowledge is up to date.
