Risk assessment courses

The foundation you need to manage safety effectively

What is a risk assessment?

A health and safety risk assessment is the process of identifying and analysing potential events that may negatively impact individuals, assets, and/or the environment. After identification is made, analysis and evaluation can be made as to how likely and severe the risk is. When this determination is made, you can then decide what measures should be in place to effectively eliminate or control the harm from happening.

Why a risk assessment is important for businesses?

It is estimated that current working conditions costs organisations £15,000,000,000 for injuries and ill health. There are many benefits to carrying out a health and safety risk assessment. It helps to provide a safe and secure environment for your employees, visitors and customers. People and assets are protected from harm, legal liability is reduced and the stability of your operations increases. Moreover, when risks are reduced there are savings in many areas of your business such as time, income, assets, property and people.

"Many of our employees carry out difficult tasks, sometimes in potentially hazardous conditions. Confirmation that our approach meets the highest standards for health and safety management is fundamental in safeguarding our people."
