Event details:

This Risk Assessment seminar provides an understanding of the Risk Assessment process following the HSE's guide '5 Steps to Risk Assessment'. Although it doesn't stop there, it delves deeper into the meaning behind the thinking of 'reasonably practicable'.

Our NEBOSH qualified tutor explores the significant differences in law and foreseeability. We look at what is the Duty of Care, and who does it extend to? The seminar also identifies vulnerabilities and disability and how they should be incorporated into the Risk Assessment process.

The Risk Assessment process includes the identification of initial risk factors and residual risk factors, and how calculations (although not compulsory) may be used to enhance your understanding and observation of priorities, and also defines and explains the Hierarchy of Control.

This seminar explores the common failures of Risk Assessments, and addresses the four ingredients to be considered within Risk Assessments, people, equipment, materials and the environment. Three example Risk Assessments are explored, working at height, workplace driving and manual handling.

You can find out how online training courses can be used effectively to underpin your staff training and procedures. The seminar is aimed at SME owners and managers without the benefit of a dedicated health and safety specialist within their team.
