Risk Assessment Training

Most people are at least aware of the need to carry out “risk assessments”, but the vast majority of companies are faced with the common problems of not knowing how, and not having the resources to fulfil their obligations.

Risk Assessments are one of the key factors to reducing accidents and loss time. Once a risk has been identified then action can begin, steps can be taken to improve the workplace, which will therefore increase production and lower costs.

This course will prepare delegates with a thorough understanding of what is required by law, and how to carry out practical and effective risk assessments, that staff will actually use.

The course is aimed at Companies looking to appoint competent risk assessors. Such people may be selected from all areas of the business, and commonly include:

  • Safety Representatives
  • Health and Safety Officers
  • Department or Line Managers
  • Supervisors

Or any member of the workforce with an interest or particular responsibilities in improving health and safety standards.

No previous training in health and safety is required, although some knowledge and awareness is beneficial.
