British Safety Council Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require every employer and self-employed person to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the health and safety risks to employees and others not in their employment to which their undertakings give rise, in order to put in place appropriate control measures. The British Safety Council Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment is a health and safety training course which aims to provide supervisors and employees with knowledge and understanding of the risk assessment process and the skills required to undertake a suitable and sufficient risk assessment. The specification is based on the Health and Safety Executive's Five Steps to Risk Assessment. It is also based on the Health and Safety Executive's guidance to the regulations and has been accredited by the Qualifications Regulators at Level 2 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework.

This British Safety Council Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment will allow delegates to:

  • Outline the reasons for conducting risk assessments
  • Outline the main legislation relating to risk assessments
  • Identify the main health and safety hazards in the workplace
  • List control measures that can reduce risks to an acceptable level
  • Describe the stages involved in a risk assessment
  • Outline the circumstances in which a risk assessment should be reviewed

  • Who Should Attend The British Safety Council Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment Course?

    This course will benefit anyone involved in undertaking or reviewing risk assessments. There are no formal entry requirements for the BSC Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment. However, it is expected that candidates will have a level of literacy and numeracy adequate to cope with the assessment.

    Course Material

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