There is a dangerous myth out there that risk assessment is simply a form filling exercise. This could not be further than the truth. The law requires your risk assessment to be “suitable and sufficient”. If not, the author of that assessment is potentially exposing workers to risk and themselves to legal action.

This course is essential for those who are asked to write or update risk assessments. Also for those who need to be able to check on whether safe systems of work and risk assessments provided by others are suitable.

It is a must for any employer, manager, or supervisor who is involved with developing safe ways of working or looking after the documentation associated with safety.

Find out why risk assessment is definitely NOT about forms and templates – read our blog.
