It is a legal requirement for every employer to make an assessment of the health and safety risks arising out of their work.


Did you know that potential hazards and risks are all around us? The purpose of the assessment is to identify what needs to be done to control health and safety risks. A risk assessment is a legal requirement for health and safety management of every organisation.  A Risk Assessment involves the identification of hazards and risks, and the precautions that can be taken in order to control them.

Doing a Risk Assessment is not always easy. For this reason we developed the Risk Assessment eLearning Module, a useful guide that can help users to identify these hazards and reduce the risks that they pose. The Risk Assessment eLearning module will ensure that you and your staff are more aware of the potential hazards and risks around you/them and know the importance of keeping an up to date risk assessment.

The main objective of this eLearning module is to determine the measures required to comply with statutory regulations and ensure that a high standard of organizational safety is reached. The training will enable the user to understand what writing a risk assessment would entail.

This online training course is suitable for any user seeking an understanding of risk assessment procedures. This e-learning course only provides awareness education. Face-to-face training would be needed in addition in order to complete the all-round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.

It is a fully online interactive course and assessment, accessible on any device, 24/7, with no time limits.  A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
