The occupational risk assessment is always carried out:

  • when new job positions are created,
  • when technological or organisational changes are introduced to current job positions,
  • after a change in the requirements related to assessed job positions,
  • after a change in protective measures used in a workplace.


  • when measuring harmful factors for the very first time, or when the current results of it are fundamentally different from the previous ones,
  • after an accident at work.

Appointment of a team – involving qualified people: competent employees, OHS specialists or external experts, employee whose work position is being assessed.

Gathering information needed to conduct risk assessment:

  • localization of the job position and duties performed,
  • information about the employees: pregnant women, part-time workers, subcontractors, employees working outside the main company premises,
  • information about used materials, technological processes, activities performed and time of those activities,
  • already identified risks and their sources,
  • risks identified by user manuals of devices and machinery used and their potential effects,
  • protective measures used,
  • accidents and occupational diseases which happened already at assessed job position,
  • minimal health and safety standards regulated by guidelines relating to assessed job position.

Analysis of gathered information and identification of hazards occurring at the work position.

Occupational risk assessment related to identified threats.

Identification of actions eliminating or reducing occupational risks – we start with hazards with the highest risk of occurrence.

Documenting the results of occupational risk assessment – law does not regulate how this document should look like. 

Informing employees of the results of risk assessment – when doing so, employer should ensure, all information is properly understood.

There are no specific regulations on how often and in what way occupational risk assessment needs to be updated. However, there are number of situations when occupational risk assessment needs to be verified and renewed (point 1). The frequency of periodic updates should be determined in-house, but it is assumed that once a year is the most optimal.

Post-accident documentation preparation.

Unfortunately, accidents can happen even in those companies that have taken all recommended precautions. What to do when accident happens in your company? First off all, employer must appoint post-accident team, who will determine causes and circumstances of the accident and prepare all the required documentation.

Delegate this task to professionals. Contact us and we will carry out for you all the necessary procedures.

How does this
process look like?
Why do you
need post-accident documentation?
Why is it important that
this documentation is prepared correctly?

Post-accident report is a mandatory document specifying the circumstances and causes of an accident at work. It should be drawn up no later than within 14 days of notification of the accident and should comply with a standard established in the Regulation of the Minister of Family, Labour and Social Policy of 24 May 2019 on post-accident report template for determining the circumstances and causes of an accident at work (Journal of Laws 2019, item 1071).

  • It is necessary in order to be able to make legal classification of the accident, determine entitlements of the injured employee (and his family) to compensation.
  • Employer is also obliged to identify and apply preventive measures aimed at preventing similar accidents in the future.

Ensuring safe and hygienic working conditions is a basic and one of the most important duties of every employer. Actions aimed at improving work safety in the company after the accident will depend on how the post-accident documents are prepared and analysed.
