After 25 years of the “six-pack”, many organisations still struggle to undertake suitable and sufficient assessments. This 2-day course explores what to assess and when not to write an assessment; why risk assessments fail to change behaviours and what the new legal framework means to risk assessments.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand what risk is
  • Demonstrate what a suitable and sufficient assessment of risk is
  • Explain when a written risk assessment is needed (and when don’t we need one)
  • Understand different methods of capturing risks – the XYZ model; task-based risk assessment
  • Understand the concept of quantifying risks – the importance of reasonable foreseeability
  • Understand controls – what is reasonable practicability and how does S40 work?
  • Carry out risk assessments as tools to manage risk

The course is designed to be interactive and challenging. Experts in risk assessment and risk management will deliver the course.
