Business Case

The risk assessment training course allows organisations to cut their costs without cutting corners or compromising on safety. If you need to make a business case for safety training, we've outlined the key reasons why this occupational safety course is good for business.

  • This course has been designed to help businesses to comply with legislation requiring business to protect people 'as far as is reasonably practicable'
  • The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that the ratio between insured and uninsured costs arising from accidents lies in the range of 1:8 to 1:36. So in the worst case, for every £100 recovered from the insurer, the business loses about £3,600
  • RoSPA's in-company option will bring this risk assessment training to you, enabling you to train more employees at once, saving time and money on travel and accommodation
  • Our in-company course can be tailored to specific requirements, using your own templates and ensuring that everything delegates learn is relevant to your business needs
  • Businesses can be confident in the high quality of this course, which is accredited by Ofqual at Level 3 of the National Qualifications Framework
  • Employees who attend this course will make positive practical contributions to the continuous improvement of health and safety at work every day
  • Discounts are available for RoSPA members
  • Build employee confidence in the safest standards of the working environment
  • Delegates will return to work able to make practical improvements to workplace safety, with a knowledge of how to undertake practical risk assessments
  • Build stakeholder confidence in health and safety best practice for your workforce, customers and suppliers
  • Ensure employee compliance with health and safety policies as well as legal requirements
  • Qualified safety professionals are an asset to their organisations, reducing costs by preventing accidents and ill health of employees, without incurring unnecessary expense by over-reacting to trivial risks
