General Workplace Risk Assessments
GBS Health and Safety Services have qualified and professional risk assessors who are not only experienced but who also understand that a systematic approach and easily understood documents allow everybody to understand the findings and any actions which are required.
Our approach to risk assessment always involves the workers, the supervisors and managers (and others who may be exposed to the hazards) to ensure that an accurate and systematic reflection of the situation is recorded. By involving all stakeholders, end-users are far more likely to ‘buy into’ the process and are more likely to adopt any necessary changes and to adhere to the safety requirements whilst performing that task.
Our risk assessment methodology ensures that the process meets HSE requirements and leads to suitable and sufficient safe working procedures.
Workers killed in 2019/20
Working days lost due to work-related ill health and non-fatal workplace injuries in 2019/20
In fines resulting from prosecutions taken, or referred to COPFS for prosecution in Scotland, by HSE where a conviction was achieved in 2019/20
