Risk Assessment

Take the first next steps towards emergency preparedness with the Alpha First Aid risk assessment.

Our questionnaire is normally completed in 10 short minutes. We recommend that users provide as much detail as possible as a larger volume of high-quality information will pay dividends when the PDF report is produced.

Upon completing the risk assessment, an Alpha First Aid representative will contact you and discuss the needs of your workplace. Please be aware that this assessment is designed with Australian business in mind.


Why do a risk assesment?

Risk Assessments are an essential part of any business, not only because of their practical use, but they are required by law (in most countries).

You will already have some measures in place to protect you and your employees. But a risk assessment must be made to ensure those measures are both known and up-to-date.

5 steps to create your risk assessment


Step 1: Identify the hazards

What is it about the activities, processes or substances used that could injure your employees or harm their health?


Step 2: Who may be harmed and how?

Ask your employees what they think the hazards are, as they may notice things that are not obvious to you and may have some good ideas on how to control the risks.

Think about people who might not be in the workplace all the time, such as visitors, contractors and maintenance workers


Step 3: Evaluate the risk and decide on precautions

This means employers must consider how likely it is that each hazard could cause harm. This will determine whether or not your employer should reduce the level of risk.


Step 4: Record your significant findings

Use a survey to write down your findings


Step 5: Review your risk assessment and update if necessary

Look at your risk assessment again and ask yourself:

  • Have there been any significant changes?
  • Have your workers spotted a problem?
  • Have you learned anything from accidents or near misses?
