Introduction to Risk Assessment
Whatever sector your organisation operates in, risk assessments are a crucial part of ensuring employees are safe from harm and that workplace risks are anticipated and reduced as much as is reasonably possible. By law, every employer must undertake this kind of assessment for health and safety risks within their working environment.
At the end of this course, candidates will have an understanding of what a risk assessment is and how to complete one. To achieve this the course will define important terms, provide some basic background information to explain how important risk assessments are, and discuss some of the legislation that applies. It will then go on to provide practical advice on how to identify hazards and analyse risk before finishing off by explaining the responsibilities of both employers and employees with regard to risk assessment.
