Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations state:
Every employer shall make a suitable and sufficient assessment of…
(a) the risks to the health and safety of his employees to which they are exposed whilst they are at work; and
(b) the risks to the health and safety of persons not in his employment arising out of, or in connection with, the conduct by him of his undertaking.
Businesses which employ more than 5 persons have to make a written record of these findings. Businesses with less than 5 persons are still likely to need this in written form, especially construction contractors who are working for larger Principal Contractors or Clients who have requested this information.
