Site-Specific -v- Generic Risk Assessments

August 8, 2022

In the world of Health & Safety there are many risk assessments, it can become overwhelming and confusing. So we thought we’d explain a couple for you, which you may have heard of in your workplace.

“Generic” and “Site-Specific” risk assessments and the differences

Generic Risk Assessments highlight commonly identified hazards and control measures related to general activities and are for tasks regularly carried out by employees.  They are completed for a general activity, not for the specific area to work in.

Site-Specific Risk Assessments are to demonstrate attention to detail in the workplace to highlight hazards only found at that location and adapt the controls to be only relevant to the risk identified.
