Employers need to ensure they have risk assessments for the work they do. A combination of knowledge, experience and specific skills is required if risk assessments are to be carried out correctly.
This short course is particularly useful for managers and supervisors who document risk assessments, but it will be equally beneficial to team leaders and individual employees who need to identify hazards and risks, on site from day to day.
The aim of this course is to provide candidates with the skills required to carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk within their workplace. In addition allow those who receive documented risk assessments to understand how these are developed and used to provide a safe working environment.
The course will cover such topics as HSE definitions, identification of hazards and risk ratings, implementing controls and completing group risk assessment, and method statement activities. Upon completion of the course, as well as passing the overall assessment questionnaire, each candidate will receive a pass certificate.
At the end of the course the candidates will be able to:
1. Understand the requirements of key legislation and relevant HSE guidance.
2. Define ‘Hazards & Risks’
3. Identify relevant control measures to reduce risk.
4. Complete a suitable and sufficient risk assessment using a generic pro-forma.
5. Develop an associated method statement and present the completed documents to the training group.
There is a possible CITB grant aid available for this course.
The maximum number of candidates for this course is 16.
This course can be carried out at our training venue provided or at a venue of your choice.
