Risk Assessments - Controlling and reducing safety risks to your employees

27.3 million working days are lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury

It is staggering how many accidents and incidents in the workplace, many leading to sickness absence, lasting damage to health for those involved or costly prosecution*, are caused through a lack of awareness of risks in the workplace and the absence of risk controls.

 * HSE prosecuted 650 cases in 2014/15, leading to convictions in 93% of cases

Educating your employees to be ‘risk aware’ is essential to reducing the potential for problems occurring in the first place.  As an employer, you have a legal obligation to identify and control risks to reduce the potential for harm – and that is where our Risk Assessment courses offer an excellent foundation for improving workplace health and safety.

Three of our most popular courses are listed below, and if preferred, we can tailor a Risk Assessment course purely to meet your business environment and needs.

Fire Risk Assessment

Fires in the workplace do happen.  Once a fire ignites, it spreads quickly and poses a serious threat to life and assets.  Learn how to conduct Fire Risk Assessments; educate your staff to reduce risks and learn how to keep controls current and relevant to the situation.
