What are Workplace Assessments?
Workplace Assessments are an assessment of the employees working environment and the tasks that they carry out relative to their personal abilities.
The aim of the assessment is to identify and analyse any risk factors which may be causing current or future health problems, or may be reducing work performance.
Risk factors may be related to:
- Design of the work area
- Design of equipment
- Design of the job and the way in which it is carried out.
It is a legal requirement that employees are provided with a safe workplace.
