Risk Assessment at a glance
Risk assessment is key to reducing accidents and workplace illness and the start of the risk management process. It enables employers to understand the action that they need to take to improve workplace health and safety, as well as productivity.
Reducing work-related accidents and illness through better risk assessment is the focus of the new Europe-wide information campaign, developed by EU-OSHA and addressing high risk sectors and small and medium-sized enterprises especially.
