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.

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.

This course is for anyone with the responsibility for conducting health and safety risk assessments.
