Learn how to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment
Just thinking about the prospect of conducting a risk assessment can strike fear in to many people
Participants on this Risk Assessment course leave having dismissed the myths and built confidence in their ability to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment.
Concentrating on common sense explanations and easy to understand language, rather than 'health and safety speak' participants quickly understand the key elements of risk assessment.
Health and Safety can only work if it can be understood.
Identifying the risk is the first part of the risk assessment, once completed that risk assessment has to be communicated to other people in a way that is easily understood and applied to the working environment of an individual employee.
Risk Assessment Formats
This risk assessment course takes participants through some of the most effective and yet ‘easy to use’ available risk assessment formats.
Risk assessment is not really that complicated a process to complete. It really is as simple as learning how to identify the risk and then learning how to prioritise those risks in terms of the severity of the consequences of the risk.
