Who is the Risk Assessment Course Suitable For?

Any person for whom responsibility for the health and safety of others forms part of their job description needs to know how to carry out a risk assessment. To be given this responsibility without complementary training is daunting for the individual and almost certain to lead to errors and omissions when risk controls are decided.

What's Included in the Risk Assessment Course?

Completion of this risk assessment course will ensure that such individual possess the key skills and knowledge necessary to enable them to carry out an effective risk assessment. Risk assessment is the keystone of effective health and safety management in any organisation, and failing to ensure the competence of individuals tasked with this activity is in contravention of health and safety law as well as being ethically suspect. By requiring staff with risk assessment responsibilities to complete this course the organisation is meeting a key requirement in respect of the competence and confidence of such individuals.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this risk assessment online course you will be able to:
  • Understand what a hazard is
  • Describe the different types of workplace hazard
  • State what a hidden hazard is - hazards that may not be immediately obvious
  • Understand what a risk is
  • Describe the risk assessment process

This e-learning provides awareness education. Face-to-face training, coaching or supervision would be needed in addition in order to complete the all-round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.
