The EssentialSkillz Risk Assessment eLearning course describes how the process of risk assessment assists with the management of safety and health in the workplace. It explains the process of scoping a risk assessment and identifying hazards. It outlines a simple matrix for evaluating and prioritising hazards, and describes how to select the most cost-effective and powerful risk control measures. How and when to document and review risk controls is also covered.
The course has been designed to apply best practice identified in the HSE Research Report (RR151) “Good practice and pitfalls in risk assessment.” In particular, the course encourages people to define the scope of a risk assessment, and to involve workers with practical knowledge of the activity or equipment being assessed.
On completion of the course, learners should carry out some simple risk assessments within their organisation under the supervision of a more experienced colleague.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Risk Assessment eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
