Risk Assessment process is the central concept of modern health and safety. It is the tool that allows organizations to make informed decisions on how to protect the safety of their employees and other people without the need for prescriptive controls from outside bodies. Done well, it put you in charge of your business, done badly it put you at the mercy of luck.
As part of managing the health and safety of your business you must control the risks in your workplace. To do this you need to think about what might cause harm to people and decide whether you are taking reasonable steps to prevent that harm. This is known as risk assessment. This process is often shrouded in unnecessary mysticism. This Webinar will help to clarify and demystify the Risk Assessment process.
Many of the examples used in the Webinar are taken from real companies facing real world problems.
Why Should You Attend:
The risk assessment process is an important aspect of protecting your workers and your business, as well as complying with the law.
The process helps you to focus on the risks that really matter in your business – the ones with the potential to cause harm. In many cases, simple and straightforward measures can be used to control risks. For many businesses this may mean simple, cheap and effective measures to ensure that their most valuable asset (the workforce) is protected.
Delegates should attend this Webinar if they wish to understand the risk assessment process and wish to use this process to manage the risks associated with the operation of their business. It will help you to take charge of, and hence manage, your own risks and your own Health and Safety.
This webinar aims to guide you to the information you need to help you identify the safety hazards at work associated with the operation of your business and to identify and implement the appropriate control measures required to protect people (your own workers and other people that may be affected by your undertaking).
This webinar will benefit organizations that want to take control of health and safety and want to protect their people from harm. The same approach can also protect the commercial reputation of the Company.
Areas Covered in the Session:
Risk Assessment is central to modern Health and Safety Management. A properly implemented program of risk assessments can assist in the prevention of injuries, fatalities, property damage incidents and other losses. This not only helps to prevent human loss and suffering, but also assists the effective management and finance of any business or organization. The process will also help to protect the organization’s commercial reputation.
We will look at:
• Health and Safety Drivers for a business/individual
• Introduction to Risk Assessment
o Competent Person
o Suitable and Sufficient
• Hazards and Risks
• Control Measures
• Risk Rating
• Reviewing and Revising Risk Assessments
This course is based on the “Five Steps” approach to Risk Assessment:
• Identifying the hazards
• Identifying who may be harmed
• Estimating the Risk and ensuring that it is Low Enough
o Existing controls
o Evaluating Remaining Risk
o Identifying Additional Control Measures
• Recording the findings
• Review and Revising the Assessment
A significant proportion of the Webinar involves looking at a series of “real life” situation and identifying what the associated hazards are. There will be consideration of who may be harmed by these hazards and the focus will be wider than just the immediate workforce (to include visitors, members of the public, contractors, etc.).
After analysis of the hazards, there will be a tutor led discussion on the control measures that could be employed to either avoid (preferably) or control the hazards. In some cases, different solutions will be proposed. This helps to demonstrate that the process is not “prescriptive”, but that there may well be more than one approach that is effective and to highlight the need for the Control Measures to be designed to the circumstances that exist within your Company.
Consideration will be given to the “hierarchy of control’s safety”, showing the importance of electing the most appropriate and effective solution.
Record keeping and the need to keep the risk assessments up to date (reviewing and revising) will be discussed.
