Risk Assessments

Risk Assessments form the lynchpin of health and safety management and this occupational safety training course puts the emphasis on practical exercises, meaning that delegates will leave with the ability to perform risk assessments in their own organisations.

A risk assessment is an important step in protecting your workers and your business, as well as complying with the law. It helps you focus on the risks that really matter in your workplace - the ones with the potential to cause harm. In many instances, straightforward measures can readily control risks - such as ensuring spillages are cleaned up promptly so people do not slip. For most, that means simple, cheap and effective measures to ensure your most valuable asset - your workforce - is protected.

The law does not expect you to eliminate all risk, but you are required to protect people as far as is "reasonably practicable".
