Risk Assessment

The HSE have emphasised that a competent person must carry out full and comprehensive risk assessment for stress. The process of risk assessing for stress can be a complex, time consuming and often unclear process; many organisations do not know how to best approach assessing the risk of psychological hazards. Activities that typically form major components of a risk assessment include focus groups, walk-throughs and talk-throughs, staff surveys,and analysing company data such as absence records etc. By engaging the services of Amity organisations will not only draw on our expert knowledge, but can also leave themselves free to focus on their core business activity.
