Risk assessment

  1. All workers are entitled to work in environments where risks to their health and safety are properly controlled.
  2. Under health and safety law, the primary responsibility for this is down to employers.
  3. Practices need to undertake both workplace and workforce risk assessments and implement the necessary changes to ensure a safe working environment.

Please see our guide on staff safety in general practice for support on how to do this.
