Accident and Incident Form
A risk assessment is a useful way of thinking through the risks and potential problems that may occur in any activity. It helps you to come up with solutions, it shows that you have planned carefully and helps you to take the reasonable steps necessary to keep everyone safe and also to protect the reputation of the organisation. It is also a good way to share important information with other members of the team to ensure that everybody is following the best practice possible to operate in a safe and accountable manner.
