Risk Assessment Course
Our Risk Assessment course is designed to give those with risk assessment responsibility a sound footing in the process of risk assessment. In it, we introduce delegates to the relevant legal framework and current HSE recommended best practice.
As part of the course, delegates will complete sample risk assessments and participate in group work. In addition, delegates will be introduced to the Approved Code of Practice for the Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations.
Our Risk Assessment course is aimed at anyone with specific responsibility for risk assessments, and will also be beneficial for anyone involved in the risk assessment or risk management process. Typical delegates include supervisors, managers, directors and safety representatives.
