The TUC has produced this guide to risk assessment to ensure that safety reps have the necessary tools to ensure their employer has done a suitable risk assessment, as well as taken appropriate measures to implement the measures required. It should also help safety reps to challenge the employer if they do not do a suitable assessment or do not act to remove the hazards identified in the risk assessment.
It is important that union safety reps are involved and consulted on the process of risk assessment, and they should always be asked to comment on assessments, although the responsibility for doing a risk assessment lies fully with management.
