This blank risk assessment template provides you with a layout to create a professional risk assessment for your business.


This document has been created by our health and safety specialists and gives you a good indication of the topics to cover when carrying out a risk assessment, including hazard identification and control measures.

Employers are required to carry out risk assessments for activities that may create risks to their workforce, and to reduce the risks as far as is reasonably practicable. Putting in place a suitable and sufficient risk assessment will give you a good idea of the risks your employees are exposed to, the controls currently in place, and further action required to reduce risks to an acceptable level.

You may use the assessment as it is, in your business, and can add your company name at the top. However, the assessment is provided as a blank template and will need to be completed for the activity under assessment.

The document is provided in Office Word format and the document text fields are fully editable to suit your business activities and control measures. Once downloaded you are free to save, edit, print and use the blank risk assessment template within your business for as long as you need it.
