Risk assessment

Relevant sectors: Applicable to all industries

A risk assessment focuses on the risks in your workplace that have the potential to cause injury and provides effective preventative measures to protect from harm.

As required by regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, an employer is required to protect people as far as ‘reasonably practicable’ from harm. Having risk assessments in place is therefore, essential. Any employer with 5 or more employees must have written risk assessments in place.

Only a ‘competent person’ can carry out risk assessments in the work place. This training course teaches the candidate the skills and knowledge they require to become a competent person, enabling them to produce suitable and sufficient risk assessments.
