Step 4 – Record your findings

It is still seen as good practice to keep a written record to show compliance with the Regulations and ensuring employees are receiving a consistent message.

You need to be able to show that:

•  A proper check was made.

•  You have considered who might be affected.

•  You have dealt with all the obvious significant hazards, taking into account the number of people who could be involved.

•  The precautions are reasonable and the remaining risk is low.

•  Staff or their representatives have been involved.
