About This Course

This information-packed Risk Assessment training course is aimed at those who have responsibility for risk assessments in their workplace.

As part of managing health and safety within an organisation, employers are responsible for assessing and controlling any risks in the workplace to protect employees and others from harm.  In order to do this, you need to recognise potential hazards and then be able to take appropriate action in order to minimise the risk.

This course has been designed to ensure you meet the requirements detailed in The Health and Safety at Work Act (HASAWA) 1974 Section 2 (1) to carry out “suitable and sufficient assessments of risk”.

Our Risk Assessment training course explains the moral, financial and legal definitions of risk assessment. We look at the legal requirements to help your organisation comply with the legal requirement to provide a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of risk.

Course Aims

The course aims to provide all delegates with the knowledge and skills necessary to allow them to undertake risk assessments in the workplace. We use real-life situations to illustrate the principles of risk assessment in a fast-paced and interactive session.


Our Risk Assessment course ensures you have the necessary tools and knowledge needed to comply with the relevant legislation requiring you to undertake “suitable and sufficient” assessment of risk.

It is based on the HSE 5 steps to risk assessment. The outline of the course is as follows:

  • Risk Assessment – an introduction and legal definitions.
  • The law and your obligations.
  • Hazards and risks.
  • Who might be harmed?
  • How to control the risks.
  • Recording your findings.
  • Reviewing your risk assessments

Who Should Attend

This course is essential for anyone who has some professional responsibility for safe systems of work or for carrying out risk assessments at work. This may include H&S Managers, HR Managers, Facilities Managers or the ‘responsible person’ or anyone else asked to write or update risk assessments. Our Risk Assessment training course is also ideal for those who need to be able to check on whether safe systems of work and risk assessments provided by others are suitable.

Benefits to you

Understand the key steps of a risk assessment, including how to identify risks, put controls in place and determine the likelihood of harm, so that you are confident in carrying out a risk assessment in your own premises.
