Effective risk management systems allow an organisation, large or small, to meet its legal requirements in protecting workers by not only identifying risk but putting in place measures to ensure adequate risk controls. Too often risk assessment becomes a tick-box exercise but it's vitally important that the organisation is mindful of the risks that are identified and takes ongoing action to monitor and manage them. This strong focus on worker health and safety, in turn, benefits organisational performance.

Supported by Health and Safety Matters magazine, the Health and Safety Executive ran this free webinar to organisations looking to understand and control different types of risks in their workplaces. This webinar featured a panel of experts from HSE including HM Health and Safety Inspectors, and a representative from NEBOSH who discussed current guidance and principles in tackling risk. We took questions during the webinar and highlighted resources, products and services that can help you build a successful risk management programme that protects employees from harm.
