Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a male Hacklemesh Weaver (Amaurobiidae), Amaurobius ferox (Black Lace-weaver) is common and similar. It would help to see more of the abdomen to be certain if it is that or something else similar. Like most spiders they have venom but are unlikely to bite except in self defense and are not considered to be of medical significance. Everyone’s immune system is different though.
