What is Risk Assessment in Construction?

Risk assessment in construction is a process to identify the likelihood of hazards and evaluate risks in the workplace. It involves implementing control measures to mitigate these risks, ensuring the well-being of workers and others. When you identify risks early, your company can prevent cost overruns, as risk assessments on construction projects is essential for accident prevention and legal compliance.
A risk is a negative occurrence or chain of events and generally occurs from:

  1. Accidents: Unplanned events that result in loss, such as falling, manual handling errors, or breakage
  1. Hazards: Objects with the propensity to cause harm, such as hazardous substances or faulty equipment

With our team of professionals, we help your company control potential risks through thorough observation and analysis.
