Course Aims

Risk assessment is a systematic method of looking at work activities, and considering the things that
could cause significant harm to people, property or the environment.

The most important purpose of risk assessments is to help prevent accidents and ensure the safety
of employees and anyone affected by workplace activities.

At the end of this course, candidates will have an understanding of what a risk assessment is and
how to complete one. To achieve this the course will define important terms, provide some basic
background information to explain how important risk assessments are and discuss some of the
legislation that applies. It will then go on to provide practical advice on how to identify hazards and
analyse risk before finishing off by explaining the responsibilities of both employers and employees
with regards to risk assessment.
