In today’s ever-evolving work environments, navigating the labyrinth of health and safety legislation can seem overwhelming for businesses across the board. Yet, mastering the art of risk management is more than a statutory obligation—it’s the cornerstone of protecting your employees and ensuring the seamless operation of your enterprise. At Phoenix STS, our seasoned Health & Safety Consultants are at the forefront of conducting in-depth Risk Assessments. By identifying potential hazards and scrutinising associated risks, we ensure your business aligns with Ireland’s stringent health and safety regulations, including the pivotal Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005  and the General Application Regulations 2007, and sets a benchmark in workplace safety standards.

Decoding Risks: The Heart of Workplace Safety

At its core, workplace risk embodies the potential for harm arising from existing hazards, underscored by the severity of the potential damage and the number of people at risk. The implementation of robust control measures to counteract these risks is paramount. Our strategic approach aims to transform potential hazards into non-issues, fostering a safe and secure work environment.

Why Regular Health & Safety Risk Assessments Are Non-Negotiable

Mandated by health and safety legislation, conducting up-to-date risk assessments is a universal requirement that transcends the scale of your operations. Regular risk assessments are indispensable whether you’re navigating the complexities of a multinational corporation, managing an agile startup, or steering a solo venture. Our adept Health & Safety Consultants excel in mapping out comprehensive Risk Assessments tailored to your workplace. This meticulous process is not merely about ticking compliance boxes—it’s instrumental in cultivating an overarching safety culture within your organisation.


The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 lays the groundwork for establishing and nurturing a healthful work environment, delineating the responsibilities that employers, self-employed individuals, and employees must shoulder in pursuit of workplace safety. In parallel, the General Application Regulations 2007 spell out specific mandates regarding the utilisation of work equipment, exposure to hazardous substances, and the manual handling of loads, further emphasising the critical nature of risk assessments and adequate safety measures.

Meeting Insurance Prerequisites

Beyond mere regulatory compliance, a thorough Risk Assessment is crucial for fulfilling the stipulations of your insurance policy. Insurance entities frequently seek proof of proactive risk management practices, including regular risk assessments, to hedge against potential liabilities. Demonstrating a steadfast commitment to health and safety can significantly mitigate the likelihood of workplace incidents, potentially leading to more favourable insurance premiums and terms. This symbiotic interplay between risk management and insurance highlights the tangible financial and operational advantages of a robust health and safety framework.
