Under health and safety law, an employer or self-employed person has a responsibility to ensure suitable and sufficient risk assessments are carried out.
This course aims to provide learners with the knowledge and understanding of the risk assessment process and the skills required to undertake a suitable and sufficient risk assessment of activities on a construction site or workplace.
Learners will be able to identify hazards in the workplace or construction site, assess, rate and evaluate risk, determine priorities and develop risk reduction procedures. Through case studies, learners can evaluate real risks and decide upon suitable precautions.
