Health & Safety Risk Assessment

Course description

Our Health & Safety Risk assessment training course is aimed at personnel who have been given the task of carrying out and communicating risk assessments. E.g. Managers, supervisors and business owners.
Risk assessments are a legal requirement for all types of workplaces, therefore, this course is designed to help attendees comply with management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999 by providing guidance on how to complete a suitable and sufficient risk assessment in the workplace.
Health and Safety can only work if it can be understood. This risk assessment course takes delegates through some of the most effective and yet ‘easy to use’ formats available. The skill to risk assessments is to prioritise risks and then focus on areas where the consequences of hazards are most severe. It really isn’t any more complicated than that. This risk assessment training will give delegates indispensable insight and guidance into the application of these legal requirements in the workplace.
