HSE want your feedback information and comments:

The HSE is keen to hear from anyone who has used the free online risk assessments and policy documents.

A risk assessment is an important step in protecting workers and businesses. A risk assessment is simply a careful examination of what could cause harm to people. Workers and others have a right to be protected from harm caused by a failure to take reasonable control measures.

As part of the evaluation of the risk assessment guidance,  HSE would like to know more.  Please can you help by spending a few moments answering some questions. The information you provide will only be used for purpose of this evaluation and will be treated in the strictest confidence.
