Why’s It Important?

The Management of Health and Safety at Work (MHSW) Regulations 1999 require employers to assess the risks of their workplace.

The Regulations require a systematic examination of work activities in the form of a Risk Assessment. If you have five or more employees, the significant findings must be recorded in writing.

Anyone affected by your work activities is at risk if you fail to identify the hazards within your business. You must implement controls to ensure that the risks are reduced to a safe level.  If you don’t know or appreciate where the risks are in your business, you are putting everyone in danger.

Why Is This Training Important?

Developing and maintaining the a positive health and safety culture within your business requires knowledge, understanding and skills.  This can be acquired in a number of ways such as work experience, informal learning and structured accredited training. 

This Level 2 Risk Assessment training is important because it can help your team to recognise and understand how managing risk benefits them, their performance and the business. It is only when they undersand the risks that they can then make important decisions on behalf of the business to reduce and prevent incidents occuring.
