Health and Safety Hazards and Risks in Construction Work

Carrying out a health and safety risk assessment Assessment of hazards and risks

The purpose of a risk assessment in this case is to indicate to designers the potential effect of their design on the health and safety of workers.  As a consequence, designers will be able to judge the weight they should give to health and safety and whether, on balance, the design can be left unchanged or should be altered to reduce the health and safety risk.  What is ‘reasonably practicable’ (which also involves cost and other design goals) becomes part of this judgement.

There is a variety of risk assessment methods, ranging from the crudely qualitative to the relatively sophisticated quantitative.  Any method chosen will, to some degree, be subjective and arbitrary but, nevertheless, can prove useful provided it is appropriate for its purpose and its limitations are recognised.

Our Construction Health and Safety consultants are able to produce, all health and Safety related documents including, project specific Method Statements and Risk Assessments and Pre- Tender Health and Safety Plans.  Oldham Associates also have in house specialist expertise of Contract Management and Contract Law.
