The first step towards risk assessment is to identify all possible hazards, this can be done by either taking a tour of the premises and trying to list down all possible hazards. In addition the staff can also be interviewed for identifying probable hazards.
After the hazard identification the second step is to decide how and whom a particular hazard could affect.

In the next phase you have to implement the precautionary measures that you have been able to deduce over the course of your risk evaluation.
