Course Description

Everything you want to know about our course

This 1 day level 2 course in Risk Assessment will enable delegates to acquire an understanding of risks in the work environment and how to contribute to the process of risk assessments under Health & Safety legislation.
The carrying out of risk assessments has become an integral part of Health & Safety legislation. Employers need to ensure that individuals carrying out risk assessments are competent to do so. Competency does not require particular qualifications but involves a combination of knowledge, experience, skills and personal qualities.

 

Risk assessors must have an understanding of the workplace and work activities, a knowledge of the best practicable means to reduce risks and an ability to make sound judgements. A necessary precursor is that assessors have an adequate knowledge and understanding of the principles of and procedures for carrying out risk assessments.

While not all employees will have to undertake risk assessments themselves, they are expected to always act to protect their own health & safety and that of others. Whilst specialised risk assessments are not covered in detail on this course, the basic skills and principles are transferable.
