Assessing risks
This module defines and demystifies “risk” and “risk assessment”. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduces, and delegates carry out a series of assessments.
Controlling risks
Here the session tackles cutting risks down, concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks, and how to choose the right method.
Understanding your responsibilities

All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – entrance and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, housekeeping and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, working at height, computers and manual handling.
Investigating accidents and incidents
The session starts with why accidents should be investigated, and goes on to cover why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do.
