Introduction - Welcome what its about 

Welcome to this 1st version of the Workplace Safety Management System (WSMS) which, for the first time, brings together all of the risk assessments, training materials and training records necessary for you to deliver an excellent service in a safe and compliant way.

We want everyone, our clients, customers and colleagues, to be safe and secure, when working or dining in the areas where Compass UK and Ireland operate a service. The process and guidance for doing so has been available for some time, but now, for the first time, it is contained within a single system which is easy to follow, up to date and simple to work from.

Essential Risk Assessments

All Essential Risk Assessments must be completed, where applicable, in every Compass operating unit, be that a catering unit, healthcare setting or facilities management site. These include assessments that are specifically required by legislation or which have been created due to the nature of hazards and risks identified within our business operations.
