What's covered on the day?

It is a legal requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992 that anyone who is required to undertake Risk Assessments are suitably trained to ensure that they have the knowledge, understanding and competency to carry out this task. This course will equip the learners with this required knowledge to safely and effectively identify risks and hazards, assess the severity and likelihood of risks, and then implement measures to reduce or eliminate the risk within their work place.


Learners will undergo continual assessment throughout this course, with the requirement to actively participate in group activities, discussions and completion of mock risk assessments as the training progresses. Learners will be issued with a certificate of attendance on completion of the course.
