This example risk assessment is to show you the kind of approach a small business can take. Use it as a guide to think through the hazards in your salon and the steps you need to take to control the risks. It is not a generic risk assessment that you can just put your company name on and adopt wholesale without any thought. That would not satisfy the law – and would not be effective in protecting people. Every business is different – you need to think through the hazards in your premises and the controls you need for yourself.
