||This report presents the findings of a study conducted by the Health and Safety Laboratory to identify and highlight the common pitfalls in industry risk assessment methodologies and their application, and to briefly summarize how different Health and Safety Executive (HSE) divisions evaluate risk assessments. A comprehensive literature search was carried out to identify possible published critiques of both general and specific risk assessments methodologies, or references that include descriptions of risk assessment pitfalls. The report presents examples of good practice in relation to risk assessment, and contrasts these with pitfalls encountered by HSE, illustrated by 26 case studies.
