CRITICAL RISKS & CONTROLS

Has your business identified it's critical risks? 

Critical risks are 'things that can seriously harm or kill you in the workplace'. ShopCare is currently working on a project to identify critical risks and controls so we can share best practice with industry, and we need your help. 

In the first ever industry review, we have collected critical risks from multiple retail, manufacturing, and supply chain businesses. This represents over 130,000 workers.

 

We have identified the 7 most common critical risks, which are presented below.

For each critical risk, the bullet points indicate the most common risks within that category, as reported by industry members

 

We are continuing to gather data on both critical risks and controls.
