Overview

Following on from our highly successful first session ‘the seven deadly sins’ we will be looking at focussing on the basics of Risk Assessment.

Modern health and safety management is based on the assessment of risk and, in the majority of cases, the assessment does not have to be complicated or bogged down with bureaucracy.

The aim of this event is to focus our thoughts on what should be considered as ‘suitable and sufficient’ in low to medium risk premises or ensure that, where ‘specific’ assessments are required, the basics are covered.

In this event we will be focussing on:

  • Understanding the basic legal duties to assess risk
  • Risk assessment terminology
  • Hazard identification in practice
  • What to record – the significant findings
  • The IOSH risk control hierarchy

We will also get the opportunity to put the above theory into practice during this event.  

What's in it for you?

If you are new to risk assessment or not confident in the basic skills, then this event is for you.  Additionally this event serves as a good refresher and maintenance of skills for anyone involved in the risk assessment process - no matter what industry you may work in. 

Who should attend

All H&S Professionals or those who carry out risk assessments.

What you need to know

A buffet with hot and cold refreshments is provided from 5.30pm during the networking session. Ample free parking is available on site.
