A properly implemented programme of risk assessments can assist in the prevention of injuries, fatalities, property damage incidents and other losses. This not only helps to prevent human loss and suffering but also assists the effective management and finance of any business or organisation. Apart from the corporate and personal benefits arising from risk assessment, employers have a legal duty to make suitable and sufficient assessments of the risks to the health and safety of employees, non-employees and the self-employed.

- Risk severity vs. risk likelihood
- Records and Reviews
- Current risk assessment methodology within the London Borough of Haringey
- Risk assessment forms and risk matrix – prioritisation
