Can we conduct a health and safety risk assessment on a bullying manager?

Question: I have been asked by our company to perform a risk assessment on a manager who has been accused of bullying on 3 occasions in the past 8 years (inconclusive investigations). I have provided my managers with advice that a health and safety risk assessment is not the correct tool to use, nor am I prepared to conduct a risk assessment. I have referred them to a third-party provider if they wish to continue.

Is there a precedent for using a health and safety risk assessment in this manner? Are there any legal ramifications in doing this?
