Risk Assessment Training in Cornwall

A risk assessment is a method of evaluating Hazards and Risks to employees, or anyone entering your business. Risk Assessments are a vital element for health and safety management, and its main objective is to determine the measures required to comply with your statutory duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and associated regulations by reducing the level of incidents/accidents.

The Health & Safety Executive in the UK defines a risk assessment as:

“….a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people, so that you can weigh up whether  you have taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm….”
