Managing risks and risk assessment

Risk video

For most small, low-risk businesses the steps you need to take are straightforward.

Our step-by-step guide features a short video explaining what employers should do to manage risk in their workplace and protect their workers, and other people, from harm.


The web pages also include:

  • advice on identifying hazards, controlling risks, recording findings, and reviewing controls
  • a risk assessment template and examples of typical businesses' assessments
  • details of more information and links on managing risk

HSE's Health and Safety Made Simple website outlines the basics for your business and offers guidance on the basic legal duties, whatever industry you work in. 

COVID-19 updates and guidance

HSE has published a range of coronavirus-related guidance and information, which you may find useful.

It includes:

  • Social distancing
    Social distancing means keeping people apart to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • First aid
    Requirements in non-healthcare settings during the outbreak, as well as first aid cover and qualifications at this time.

The new Building Safety Regulator

HSE is working to establish the first ever Building Safety Regulator (BSR) to ensure strong enforcement of the new regulatory system.

The government has asked HSE to establish a new Building Safety Regulator in the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster and following recommendations in the ‘Building a Safer Future’ report by Dame Judith Hackitt.
