New alliance helps electrical firms carry out risk assessments

SELECT has offered its members a new tool to help with producing risk assessment information and guidance.

The electricians’ trade body in Scotland confirmed it has entered into an arrangement with the Building Safety Group (BSG) to provide member companies with online risk assessment software. Under the agreement, firms will be able to log in to BSG’s system, where they will have access to more than 70 different types of risk assessment template.

Dave Forrester, head of technical services at SELECT said, “Conducting regular risk assessments is essential for managing the health, safety and environmental welfare of everyone affected by a business. This includes site operatives, sub-contractors, office staff and in-house maintenance teams as well as the general public. This new alliance with BSG will open up to our members a tried and tested means not only of ensuring workplace and public safety but also of meeting the legal requirements enshrined in health and safety provision.”
