Hazard Identification and Risk Management are specific requirements under the Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations HSWA (GRWM) Regulations 2016.s5-8.

We expect our partners to manage risks 'so far as reasonably practicable' (see WorkSafe definitions) in accordance with regulatory requirements and/or industry good practice standards.

Health and safety procedures and systems of work must explain how a partner's hazards and risks will be identified and managed for any work they undertake.

The level of detail in any risk management process should be proportionate to the risk to health and safety of workers and consequences of not providing adequate risk controls. You can access information on Risk Management here.
