Risk Assessment in the Workplace Course Contents
Whatever sector your organisation operates in, risk assessments are a crucial part of ensuring employees are safe from harm and that workplace risks are anticipated and reduced as much as is reasonably possible.
By law, every employer must undertake this kind of assessment for health and safety risks within their working environment. This course gives a clear, structured overview of what a risk assessment is, as well as explaining each stage of how to perform one in a clear, step by step manner.
As well as ensuring legal compliance, this course will show you how to assign ratings to workplace risks, as well as put appropriate control measures in place.

1. Why Assess Risks?
In the first section we look at why you should do risk assessments, including the legal, moral and financial reasons. It emphasises that, without a structured process, it’s easy to miss risks if you have lots of different responsibilities. And risks can also be missed through over-familiarity with the workplace.
2. When Assess Risks?
Here, we define what risks and hazards are and look at how risk can depend on many things.
Risk Assessments may NOT always be necessary, so we explain how you decide whether one IS needed and when you need to do risk assessments again.
3. The 5 Steps to Risk Assessment
This section explains exactly how to do a risk assessment using a simple 5 step process.
It takes you through each column of a standard risk assessment form explaining what should go into that column and how to fill it in.
It gives examples and explains how to organise a plan of action to deal with hazards you find.
Test & Certificate
This Risk Assessment in the Workplace training programme concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training, and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout.
4. Risk Assessment Tool
Having chosen the correct wheel, the next step is to correctly set up and install the abrasive wheel. You need to know which checks should be done and you also need to know how to look after abrasive wheels properly, including handling, maintaining and storing them.
In this section we look at how you do this, from taking an abrasive wheel out of its packaging right through to being ready to use it.
We cover ring tests and wheel mounting, which includes flanges and blotters. We cover safety checks and we cover wheel maintenance (including truing, dressing and balancing), handling and storage.
