As part of managing the health and safety of your business, you must control the risks in your workplace. To do this you need to think about what might cause harm to people and decide whether you are taking reasonable steps to prevent that harm. This is known as risk assessment and it is something you are required by law to carry out.
Risk assessments are an essential exercise in effective management of health and safety in the workplace. Risk assessment is an ongoing process and should be carried out especially when changes to procedures, equipment or layout take place in a work area.
TRN's Level 2 Award in Principles of Risk Assessment course is designed to be an introduction to the principles of Risk Assessment. It covers why risk assessments are necessary, the legal requirements relating to risk assessments and the necessary processes for carrying out a risk assessment. The course is suitable for learners working in any environment who need knowledge of risk in the workplace and the processes required to control it.
