Risk assessments are very important as they form an integral part of a good occupational health and safety management plan. They help to:

1. Create awareness of hazards and risks.
2. Identify who may be at risk (employees, cleaners, visitors, contractors, the public, etc).
3. Determine if existing control measures are adequate or if more should be done.
4. Prevent injuries or illnesses when done at the design or planning stage.
5. Prioritize hazards and control measures.
