Risk AssessmentIn the UK, every company, school, construction site and care setting etc has a statutory duty to assess workplace risks that might be present.
There is legislation in place stating that this assessment must be undertaken by a what is known as a "competent person". They have to examine business working practices so thay they can
1) establish what, if any, hazards and threats
are attached to these practices;
2) establish how likely it is that harm could come to the business and its staff and others as a
result of these hazards;
3) identify what action needs to be taken to remove or minimise these threats.
The Risk Assessment Certificate is a one-day course aimed at members of staff who have to carry out a risk assessments for their company, school, college or care setting.
The course when offered in-house is delivered as a bespoke one and identifies the hazards and subsequent controls that need to be put in place to ensure the safety, health and well-being of all. For example schools wish to organise trips out but may feel constrained by legislation, colleges may wish to identify work placements but don't know how to recognise and record their findings from inspections they must carry out. Workers in Care settings looking after vulnerable people need to know how to identify controls so that activities and the environment can remain safe. Site managers on construction projects may have to produce a health and safety risk register but are not familiar with the level of detail required and why.
