Risk Assessment


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.

The course is designed to give those with risk assessment responsibility a sound footing in the process of risk assessment. We introduce delegates to the relevant legal framework and current HSE recommended best practice.

Key modules of the Risk Assessment course include:

  • The business case for health and safety including the legal context (with specific reference to the Health and Safety at Work Act and Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations
  • Risk identification and evaluation
  • Control and risk management (risk control hierarchy and reasonably practicable)
  • Record keeping and communication
  • The risk assessment process - including the HSE "Five Steps to Risk Assessment" and the principles of producing a suitable and sufficient risk assessment

  • 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.

    Course Material

    Each delegate on the Risk Assessment course will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course. This workbook will contain information and forms to assist risk assessors. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
