Action to be taken prior to an assurance event: How do I assess Health & Safety risks prior to my visit?
Officers should always consider Health & Safety issues prior to any visit and take appropriate action.
The Departmental guidance on Health & Safety is provided within the HS series of guidance available on the intranet. All officers and line managers have a responsibility to ensure that they are not unduly placing themselves or their colleagues at risk. Management commands should all have a current H&M risk assessment. The potential risks faced by particular traders, premises and potential planned assurance activity should be considered as part of any pre- visit consideration.
