CheckedSafe’s Dynamic Risk assessment App is a clever, innovative smartphone-based App to enable users to carry out a Risk Assessment in real time.
Paper-based Risk assessments, which are often carried out at a desk, can be pre-prepared or copied and pasted whereas by using CheckedSafe the risk assessment can be carried out at the point of work more accurately, thereby minimising the chance of overlooking vital hazards for the assessment. Complacency can be virtually eliminated.
What Is a Dynamic Risk Assessment?
“The continuous process of identifying hazards, assessing risk, taking action to eliminate or reduce risk, monitoring and reviewing, in the rapidly changing circumstances of an operational incident.”
Risk Assessments and the Law
Employers have a legal obligation to protect their health and safety and that of their workforce. Regulation 3, of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, requires, among other things, that all employers assess the risks to the health and safety of their employees while they are at work.
