Course Content

The overall aim is for trainees to acquire knowledge and practical skills to improve their competency in carrying out general risk assessments under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. It is anticipated that by the end of a course trainees will be able to:

  • State the purpose for, and benefits of, using a risk assessment approach to the management of health and safety
  • State the basic principles of risk assessment and stages involved in carrying out risk assessments in practice
  • Carry out, record, monitor and review risk assessments within their own working environment, (subject to possession of the necessary technical knowledge and skills).
  • Trainees will become aware of the limitations of their personal knowledge and experience and will know where to seek further information, guidance and assistance.

This will assist trainees to become competent risk assessors utilising their existing knowledge experience and skills and will provide a foundation for further learning.
