Risk analysis of the working environment

Risk analysis is a systematic process in which risk factors concerning employees are evaluated and a risk level is determined. In risk analysis, quality is more important than quantity.

This has been proven in several court cases and investigations of work-related accidents and occupational diseases.

A risk analysis of the working environment is mandatory to all enterprises with at least one employeelibisev naine with a contract of employment. From the point of view of occupational health and safety, risk analysis is the most important document, because it determines:

  1. The necessity of medical examination
  2. The items of internal arrangements
  3. The necessity of safety marking and
  4. Personal protective equipment as well as
  5. A plan of action for improving the working environment.

Risk analysis is not just a paper in a drawer.

Risk analysis must constantly be updated if changes occur in the working environment: new appliances installed, rearranged workspaces, new jobs, extensions to the building, new office spaces etc.

It is recommended to update the risk analysis at least once a year.
