Risk Assessment
Disbudding
Author: Gemma May
Date:11/01/2023
Review date: 6 months or when the need for review occurs
Risk is an unavoidable part of everyday life, in our job
as vet techs there are even more, however the jobs still
need to be done, a risk assessment will aid us in doing
this as safely as possible!
Risk assessments are a legal requirement under the
Management of Health and Safety at work Regulations
1999.
The process of a Risk Assessment, identifies the
hazards, what risks are presented from that hazard,
who/ what is at risk. It also rates the risk for purposes
of management prioritisation and puts measures in
place to reduce the risk.
There are multiple risks in the task of disbudding, however I
have chosen a select few to demonstrate how the risks would be
assessed.
