Risk and COSHH Assessments

Brunel Management Services can provide independent Risk and COSHH assessments independently of our retained service.

Risk Assessments

In order to maintain a safe working environment and therefore a healthy, safe workforce, you will need to perform risk assessments. By law, regardless of the size of your organisation, every employer shall make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to the health and safety of their employees to which they are exposed whilst they are at work.

Risk assessments will help you to identify and focus on the risks that matter most in your workplace – the ones that have the potential to cause harm or serious injury.

Risk assessments must be undertaken by a competent person. Brunel Management will act as the competent person, working with you to identify the hazards and evaluate the risks associated with your workplace. We will compile the necessary risk assessments and provide you with information and instruction as to how to review and update these assessments in the future.

Should you decide to retain Brunel Management on an annual basis, you can use our name as your competent person to assist you in all health and safety matters. Failure to manage risk in the workplace can seriously affect your business, harm your workforce, and could also land you in court.

COSHH Assessments

Regulation 6 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) requires an employer to formally assess all operations and/or processes which are liable to cause exposure to hazardous substances.

Performing a COSHH assessment demonstrates that the company has considered all the factors relevant to the work and judgements have been made with regard to the type of hazard, monitoring exposure levels, and health surveillance of employees who may be at risk.

In order to comply with the regulations each assessment is required to be completed by a competent person. Therefore, the decision as to who should carry out that assessment will depend on the knowledge and experience required for the particular assessment and the complexity of the operation and/or process.

Brunel Management will act as the competent person, working with you to identify operations and/or processes that are liable to cause exposure to hazardous substances. We will generate and complete the necessary COSHH assessments and provide you with instruction as to how to review and update these assessments in the future.

Should you decide to retain on an annual basis, you can use our name as your competent person to assist you in all health and safety matters. Failure to conduct COSHH assessments can seriously affect your business, harm your workforce and land you in Court.
