Bespoke risk assessments are required under the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999.  They may be required to assess the risks arising from a specific task or work process.  Examples of bespoke risk assessments may be for the use of hazardous machinery, or working in a potentially hazardous environment.

Examples of bespoke hazards may be:

  • Hazardous machinery
  • Hazardous environment
  • Workplace transport
  • Warehouse storage
  • Working at height

It is a requirement that the bespoke risk assessment be carried out by a competent person.  Failure to comply with this requirement may render a bespoke risk assessment as non-conforming and void.

On a practical level, the main benefit of a bespoke risk assessment is to reduce the likelihood of bespoke hazards resulting in harm.

On a legal level, the main benefit of having a bespoke risk assessment in place is that if a worst-case scenario does happen and a bespoke hazard does result in harm, your organisation will have a legal defence.

These benefits rely on the risk assessment being kept up-to-date, and recommendations made in the risk assessment being acted on within a reasonable timeframe.
