SMS Europe can carry out your risk assessments for you, assist you with your risk assessments, or provide guidance on risk assessment.  We can also provide training and coaching on risk assessments.  Using up to date methods we can take all the hassle out of your risk assessment requirements, leaving you to be able to get on with managing your business.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 place duties on people and companies, to carry out risk assessments.   This requires all employers and self-employed people to assess the risks to workers and any others who may be affected by their work or business. Risk Assessments will enable them to identify the measures they need to take to comply with health and safety law.  Those who employ five or more employees should record the significant findings of that risk assessment.


SMS Europe Health and Safety Consultants have been working with their clients and carrying out risk assessments in conjunction, or on their behalf since the regulations came into force.  Over time we have developed a risk assessment format and process that we believe to provide the best possible way to carry out the risk assessment process.

Our risk assessors are Health and Safety Consultants who are members of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, with at least five years’ experience.  We have knowledge of carrying out risk assessments in a large array of businesses and sectors.   Our risk assessments are not only suitable and sufficient but ensure that all aspects of the subject are appropriately assessed with reference to the correct HSE guidance, industry best practice and where appropriate, industry standards.
