TITLE: RISK ASSESSTMENT
Everything we do involves some degree of risk and it’s up to us to determine whether it is an acceptable risk or not. Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 businesses are legally required to prepare a Safety Statement that documents how it manages safety and conducting risk assessments is the key to achieving this.
Candidates will expect to be able to:
Contribute to the risk assessment programmes at their workplaces.
Conduct risk assessments (assuming they have the necessary technical knowledge in relation to the activities/environments/issues being assessed).
Organise and implement a risk assessment programme where this has not already been started.
Participate in the identification of specific training needs for the activities being assessed.
Assist employers in meeting legal requirements and promote improved standards of health and safety within their organisation. Suitable candidates for the programme and assessment will need to have good standards of oral and written communication, the ability to seek additional advice and information and the capability to work as part of a team.
Candidates are required to complete an individual assignment to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of risk assessment principles and their application. Candidates are only eligible for certification if they have completed the training programme, the assignment and the self-evaluation successfully.
