Purpose of the Course:

“The Risk Assessment & Planned Task Observation course involves a systematic process where professionals identify, analyze, and control hazards and risks present in a workplace. They determine which measures should be implemented to eliminate or control those risks.”

Moreover, many regulations require risk assessments. By adhering to these legal requirements, organizations can ensure a safer work environment. Additionally, regular risk assessments allow organizations to adapt to changing conditions. Furthermore, as new risks emerge, adjustments must be made to maintain a safe working environment.

There is a clear legislative requirement for employers to conduct effective risk assessments as part of their obligations to provide a safe place of work for their employees. 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”.

Course Duration: 2 days.
