Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Risk Assessment toolkit

Risk Assessment toolkit


The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations requires employers to carry out ‘suitable and sufficient’ risk assessments. Risk assessments can usually be carried out by management without the need for specialist assistance. Risk assessment involves examination of the workplace and working practices to identify what could cause harm to people, together with consideration of the measures needed to eliminate or minimise these risks.

Our toolkit provides the background to doing risk assessments, plus a table on which to record the findings of the risk assessment and any corrective measures that are called for.
