Reasonably Practicable

What does “reasonably practicable” mean?

It is balancing the level of risk against the measures needed to control the real risk in terms of money, time or trouble. However, you do not need to take action if it would be grossly disproportionate to the level of risk.

For further guidance on risk assessments and a list of FAQ’s please refer to the HSE website risk management page on http://www.hse.gov.uk/risk/faq.htm#q7

What is the difference between ALARP and SFAIRP?

“ALARP” is short for “as low as reasonably practicable”. “SFAIRP” is short for “so far as is reasonably practicable”. The HSE consider the two terms to mean essentially the same thing with the concept of “reasonably practicable” being at their core. ALARP describes the level to which the HSE expect to see workplace risks controlled.

Hi Twitter friends I had a big order and they've cancelled.
They ordered 200kg high quality vegan & gluten free chocolate covered hazelnuts.
Is anyone is interested in buying high quality vegan and gluten free chocolate covered hazelnuts?
Thanks from this small business owner.

Same day, same great content, different time and branch! This month, instead of having a Mid Shires presentation, we are supporting @IOSH_Chiltern with their highly topical event -

Its a really great feeling when you get feedback from a client that says..."Thank you for your help and support over the past few weeks with the Risk Assessments. With the right teacher, it’s incredible what you learn."

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are a significant issue, which can be caused by manual handling at work including lifting or dragging heavy or bulky loads, pushing, pulling, twisting or completing repetitive tasks. http://ow.ly/T02C50EteF7

Looking forward to this week with health, safety and environmental inspections, internal quality audit and discussing manual handling training with client. Working local, further afield and remotely by Zoom. #Health #safety #environmental #quality

Time out this lunchtime for a nice walk with Holly taking in the sun, scenery and sounds 🙏👍☀️🐥🌳
