Fire risk Assessment A risk assessment is an essential step in protecting the staff, the organization as well as abiding by the law (Kemshall and Pritchard, 1997). Studies have revealed that risk assessment assists in focusing on the risks that actually matter in the place of work- risks deemed to have the highest probability of causing harm (Kemshall and Pritchard, 1997).
In most instances, direct measures can be employed to control risks, for instance, ensuring that workers use protective equipment to lessen exposure to noise or contact with chemicals (Sherriff and Tooma, 2010). For many, this means the utilization of cheap, simple, and efficient measures to make certain that the personnel are protected. A risk assessment can be defined as a careful examination of the hazards in the workplace that can cause harm to the employees, in order to size up if the organization has taken adequate precautions or more should be done in order to prevent the harm (Li, 2005).
The organization has the responsibility of protecting its personnel form any harm that may be caused by a failure to undertake realistic control measures. The law does not expect organizations to eradicate all risks, but it necessitates organizations to protect its employees as much as it is sensibly practical (Kemshall and Pritchard, 1997).
