More about this course

Risk Assessment is a trainer-led course that is delivered over a full day or as a video online course on our risk assessment site. The course aims are to give an understanding of the importance of risk assessment and current applicable legislation, to promote awareness and understanding of what constitutes a hazard, to promote understanding of the 5 steps of carrying out a risk assessment, and to give an understanding of different control measures and how these might be implemented. By the end of this session, candidates will understand the importance of risk assessment and current applicable legislation, understand what constitutes a hazard, understand the hierarchy of controls, and be able to carry out a risk assessment.

This qualification is designed to be an introduction to the principles of Risk Assessment. It covers why risk assessments are necessary, the legal requirements relating to risk assessments and simple processes for carrying out a risk assessment.  It is suitable for learners working in any environment who need to be more risk aware by raising their knowledge of risk in the workplace and the basic things they can do to control it.

Please note that learners undertaking a ProTrainings Trainings Course have the option to choose to take a regulated qualification.
