When would you need to update your risk assessment?
Correspondingly, why do risk assessments need to be reviewed?
Your risk assessment should be reviewed regularly to ensure that the risk of staff being harmed by work-related violence has not changed and that no further control measures are needed. As a guide, it is recommended that risk assessments be reviewed on an annual basis.
One may also ask, what happens if you don't do a risk assessment? These risks can harm people, and also the business. Think about just some of the consequences of failing to control risks, and harming your people (and others) through your business activities: Cost of replacing staff.
Also, how often should a risk assessment be reviewed as a minimum?
every 3 years
