Summary

In this module, we have seen that:

  • Detailed risk assessments are needed when the preliminary risk assessment is deemed not to be suitable and sufficient.
  • The assessment covers the following areas: the task, the load, the environment, and the individual capability.
  • Where a competent person cannot be identified internally, a suitable external person or body may be commissioned to undertake these assessments.
