This online Risk Assessment training is designed to help businesses comply with Health and Safety regulations, as well as learn to and carry out structured risk assessments in the workplace.
Whatever sector your organisation operates in, risk assessments are a crucial part of ensuring employees are safe from harm and that workplace risks are anticipated and reduced as much as is reasonably possible.
By law, every employer must undertake this kind of assessment for health and safety risks within their working environment. This course gives a clear, structured overview of what a risk assessment is, as well as explaining each stage of how to perform one in a clear, step by step manner.
As well as ensuring legal compliance, this course will show you how to assign ratings to workplace risks, as well as put appropriate control measures in place.
Risk Assessment in the Workplace Course Contents
1. Why Assess Risks?
In the first section we look at why you should do risk assessments, including the legal, moral and financial reasons. It emphasises that, without a structured process, it’s easy to miss risks if you have lots of different responsibilities. And risks can also be missed through over-familiarity with the workplace.
2. When Assess Risks?
Here, we define what risks and hazards are and look at how risk can depend on many things.
Risk Assessments may NOT always be necessary, so we explain how you decide whether one IS needed and when you need to do risk assessments again.
3. The 5 Steps to Risk Assessment
This section explains exactly how to do a risk assessment using a simple 5 step process.
It takes you through each column of a standard risk assessment form explaining what should go into that column and how to fill it in.
It gives examples and explains how to organise a plan of action to deal with hazards you find.
4. Risk Assessment Tool
This is a simple-to-use interactive tool which can be used to create your own Risk Assessments. It uses short summary reminders from section 3 to help you fill out each column of the risk assessment form.
Your risk assessments are saved and can be accessed either from within this programme or directly through the LMS.
