This is a two day course followed by the candidate undertaking a risk assessment of part of their workplace or a work process. The Assessment is required in order to gain certification.

It is particularly useful for managers and supervisors but it will be equally beneficial to individual workers, team leader, technicians, engineers or any other personnel contributing to the risk assessment process.

Employers need to ensure that individuals carrying out risk assessments are competent to do so. Competency does not necessarily require particular qualifications but involves a combination of knowledge, experience, skills and personal qualities.

Assessors must have an understanding of the workplace and work activities, knowledge of the best precursor is that they have adequate knowledge and understanding of the principles of, and procedures for, carrying out risk assessments; this is the subject of this qualification.

Successful completion of the training programme, assignment and self-evaluation will enable candidates to:

  • Contribute to the risk assessment programmes at their workplaces.

  • Conduct risk assessments (assuming they have the necessary technical knowledge in relation to the activities/environments/issue being assessed).
  • Organise and implement a risk assessment programme where this has not already been starte.
  • Participate in the identification of specific training needs for the activities being assessed.
  • Assist employers in meeting legal requirements and promote improved standards of health and safety within their organisation.
Suitable candidates for the programme and assessment will need to have good standards of written and oral communication, the ability to analyse workplaces and work activities, the confidence and ability to seek additional advice and information and the capability to work as part of a team.
