Risk Assessment Instructor Course
Our Risk Assessment Instructor course will provide a broad and comprehensive overview of best practice in risk assessment training techniques. It covers a general overview of health and safety requirements, with a particular emphasis on the importance of risk assessment.
The course is aimed at employees within an organisation who have been tasked with training other colleagues in risk assessment. It is targeted at those new to training risk assessment courses, and is also ideal for those wishing to update their training skills.
What Does the Risk Assessment Instructor Course Cover?
The syllabus of the Risk Assessment Instructor course covers relevant issues such as:
- The business case for health and safety and the importance of health and safety in the workplace. Also including health and safety law, with a specific and detailed examination of the requirements in the Health and Safety at Work Act and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations
- The risk assessment process and its importance in health and safety with a focus on the Health and Safety Executive's approach outlined in Five Steps to Risk Assessment
- The concept of "reasonably foreseeable" and "reasonably practicable"
- Health and safety management systems including the Health and Safety Executive's HSG65 version
- Identifying and developing risk controls using risk control hierarchies (risk management)
In addition, we will explore modern trainer training techniques:
- Planning and preparing to train, including the writing of trainers plans
- Delivering effective training
- Different learning styles using the Honey and Mumford approach
- Dealing with difficult delegates
- Providing feedback and assessment
All health and safety trainers are qualified and experienced safety professionals, with an appropriate background in conducting risk assessments. They are also highly experienced in delivering engaging health and safety training that keeps delegates interested throughout the day, which reduces the chances of delegate's attentions wandering and them missing vital content!
All consultants hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), as well as numerous other health and safety qualifications. This is so that they have the knowledge and expertise to answer any questions course attendees may have, rather than simply standing at the front of the class and delivering the course like a lecture.
This course content can be tailored to your specific requirements, taking into account the specific dangers and working practices of your particular company and industry. It can also be combined with one or more other courses to create a truly bespoke training programme for your employees.
