In this way, understanding how to conduct a GRA is fundamental to overall health and safety management. One of the first things we always do when we visit a client’s premises is perform a GRA. Why is this important? Well, under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (MHSWR), you must:

* Carry out a risk assessment;
* Identify and record any significant risks;
* Put in place measures to control or remove risks; and
* Appoint competent people to advise you.
