A risk assessment is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork , but rather about identifying sensible measures to control the risks in your workplace.
Risk management is about taking practical steps to protect people from real harm and suffering - not bureaucratic back covering.
Taking a sensible approach to risk management is about:
ensuring that workers and the public are properly protected
enabling innovation and learning not stifling them
ensuring that those who create risks manage them responsibly and understand that failure to manage significant risks responsibly is likely to lead to robust action
providing overall benefit to society by balancing benefits and risks, with a focus on reducing significant risks - both those which arise more often and those with serious consequences
enabling individuals to understand that as well as the right to protection, they also have to exercise responsibility
when talking about harm remember this could be physical or mental
