The risk assessment tool will take you through the hazards common to a low-risk shop. It will encourage you to think about how these could affect your employees and members of the public (steps 1 – 7).

  1. Slips and trips
  2. Handling and moving stock
  3. Working at height
  4. Health of workers in the shop environment
  5. Threat of robbery and violence
  6. Shop equipment
  7. Fire

If you share services with other shops, eg common delivery areas, you need to talk to them about how you’ll work together to manage risks.
