Occupational Health and Safety, is a key phrase in the workplace. All employers are under a statutory duty to ensure a safe working environment for all employees and persons entering the work site. It is essential that you do everything possible to reduce the risk of injury and illness in the workplace.

And the Report integrating the desk top audit with the site inspection focusing on the flaws in the system, and prioritises the most threatening issues, where policies are needed, and where existing procedures are not working effectively.
A risk assessment is simply a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people, so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm. Workers and others have a right to be protected from harm caused by a failure to take reasonable control measures.
Accidents and ill health can ruin lives and affect your business too if output is lost, machinery is damaged, insurance costs increase or you have to go to court. You are legally required to assess the risks in your workplace so that you put in place a plan to control the risks. Delta Training can assist you to undertake the risk assessments at you workplace, in addition Delta Training can train your employees in the skills required to competently assess the risks at your workplace.

Manual Handling assessments are required for each manual handling task. These tasks are then required to be documented. The purpose of the manual handling risk assessments is to identify potential hazards and then implement appropriate control measures to reduce the risks as far as is practicable. One of the control measures would be Manual Handling training, which is also a mandatory requirement.
