Risk Assessment Course Overview

Risk Assessment course is a two-day program, based on the OHS Act & Regulations. Furthermore, there is a clear legislative requirement for employers to conduct an effective risk assessment as part of their obligations to provide a safe place of work for their employees, visitors & contractors. The most important piece of legislation in respect to this is contained with Section 8 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 1993. Section 8 (2) (d) requires that an employer must “establish, as far as is reasonably practicable, what hazards to the health and safety of persons are attached to any work which is performed…and any plant or machinery that is used in his business.  Compliance with this section is not only a legal obligation but also a moral and ethical one, as it directly impacts the well-being of workers.
