Risk assessment is an essential part of workplace safety. Suitable and sufficient risk assessments will aid legal compliance, but will also effectively reduce the risks to the health and safety of employees and others within a workplace.
This practical two day course will be useful for anyone with a responsibility to conduct risk assessments in low risk work environments.
This accredited qualification covers:
- The importance of health & safety within a workplace
- Legislative requirements
- Principles of risk assessment
- The relationship between hazard and risk
- The stages of risk assessment
- Assessing whether control measures within a workplace are suitable and sufficient.
A highly practical element of the course is the opportunity to apply the knowledge learnt by undertaking a risk assessment. The completion of this activity also forms part of the final assessment, in addition to a short multiple choice exam.
