Courses Risk Assessment Awareness

 

 

RISK ASSESSMENT AWARENESS

Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires, among other things, that all employers assess the health and safety risks to their employees while they’re at work.

Between 2016 and 2017 alone there were 609,000 workplace injuries, which is why it’s more vital than ever to ensure the safeguarding and wellbeing of your staff by training them in how to perform risk assessments. Workplace injuries cost employers millions of pounds a year in staff absences.
