Workshop TitleHealth and Safety Awareness through Risk Assessment

Summary of the overall aims of the course

This course is to make delegates aware of basic health and safety issues.

Risk assessments are the lynchpin of health and safety management and this course will enable those responsible to make an informed decision. To many people there are obvious risks and common sense tells us what precautions to take however, other factors can impact or compound this risk.

So how do you recognise this situation and more importantly, what action should you be taking in order to discharge your duty of care to those you utilise in your organisation and others?

Course objectives

At the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • State legal responsibilities of organisations and managers to volunteers, employees and others;
  • Identify relevant legislation requiring risk assessment within the UK;
  • Construct a comprehensive hazard checklist for a practical work place situation;
  • Identify what factors compound or escalate a risk;
  • Describe how to mitigate that risk using a range of appropriate control measures;
  • Demonstrate an understanding of requirements for monitoring and reviewing risk assessments in accordance with legislation;
  • Undertake a risk assessment on a specific situation that is deemed 'suitable and sufficient'.

Target audience

Those responsible for risk assessing situations, supervisors, team leaders and managers.
