Amanda and Julian explained why Health Risk Management is an essential part of any organisation’s health and safety strategy and should follow the same risk management approach: identification and assessment of risk, controlling exposure, training, health surveillance and review. They emphasised that a workplace health risk assessment should focus specifically on the health risks within the workplace, especially those that are not immediately evident. This assessment should then form the basis for deciding what response is needed to eliminate, control and minimise health risks and should be undertaken by those who have an understanding of potential workplace health risks and ways of managing them effectively.
