Health & Safety

TSA will prepare customised risk assessments and safety statements and advise you on managing safety and risk in your business

Safety Statement/Risk Assessment

A safety statement is an employer’s legally required commitment, in writing, to a safe and healthy workplace. The document should outline the different aspects of safety and health management, the responsibilities of those affected by them, and guidance information relating to general policies and ongoing commitments in all areas of health and safety. As part of this process every employer is required to identify workplace hazards under their control and be in possession of a written assessment of the risks they pose. 

At TSA we pride ourselves in providing a personalised on-site service, where we identify hazards and assess associated risks so that controls can be put in place to ensure your legal compliance.

  • an employee returning to work from injury or lengthy sickness, 
  • following notice of pregnancy, 
  • where there has been a significant increase in workplace accidents,
  • where the task being performed is an isolated short term activity, or is not covered by your general risk assessment.
