Risk Assessment Training
Phoenix’s Risk Assessment Training course teaches delegates how to perform risk assessments effectively to review and improve health and safety practices in the workplace.
What is Phoenix's Risk Assessment Training?
Under UK law, all organisations with 5 or more staff are required to carry out written health and safety risk assessments covering all significant hazards. These risk assessments allow potential hazards in the workplace to be identified, and their severity assessed, allowing for the necessary precautions to be put in place.
Through Phoenix’s risk assessment course, delegates can learn how to carry out these risk assessments effectively, reviewing and controlling hazards, in turn reducing the risks faced by employees in the workplace.
