Who Should Take This Risk Assessment Course?

This course is suitable for all workers involved in developing a risk assessment and/or enforcing procedures in the workplace. This applies to all employers, managers and supervisors, regardless of the industry or environment that they work in.

The Legal Bit – Do You Comply?
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 states that it is the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees. This should be done using risk assessment that identifies, controls and manages the potential risks.

The Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999 require employers to assess the risks to the health and safety of employees and ensure the effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of the preventive and protective measures put in place.

This Risk Assessment course aids you to comply with these Regulations by providing you with the information need to be able to carry out a sufficient risk assessment, implement appropriate control measures and monitor and review the assessment’s findings.
