What’s It About?
This Level 2 Risk Assessment course will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to carry out risk assessments.
It includes the five stages of the risk assessment process and the risk assessment format to use.
Who Should Attend?
This one day course is perfect if you are involved in developing risk assessment procedures in your workplace.
Whatever environment you work in, it will raise your knowledge of risk assessment in the workplace. It will also ensure you know how to implement the necessary controls to reduce risks to a safe level.
This course is not suitable for managers or supervisors who already have basic risk assessment knowledge. They would need to attend the Level 3 Award in Risk Assessment qualification.
This course is now being delivered by interactive online training via Zoom.
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.
What Will You Gain?
By the end of this course, you will understand how to undertake a sufficient and effective risk assessment. In particular, you will know what is involved at each stage of the risk assessment process. You will be able to rate risks according to their likelihood and severity. So then you will be able to ensure suitable control measures are put in place.
You will also understand the legal requirements in regards to undertaking a risk assessment.
On returning to the workplace, you will be able to contribute to the formal risk assessment process within your workplace.
