Level 2 Risk Assessment


Course description

Every year, thousands of people in the UK are forced to take time off work due to health and safety-related issues. For most, this is a number of days. However, in some cases people suffer major injuries and even death. A hard-hitting fact is that the vast majority of these incidents could have been avoided if standards of health and safety in the workplace had been better.

Risk assessments carried out correctly will prevent accidents and ill health by recognising what can cause harm and putting in controls to stop that harm from occurring.


The Course

It covers the background and legislation associated with risk assessments, common accidents, incidents and near misses in workplaces, different types of risk assessment and how risk assessment relates to enforcement. It also covers the 5-step process to risk assessment in detail, providing examples and talks learners how to conduct a basic risk assessment in their own workplace.


Areas Covered

  • health and safety legislation
  • duties of employees and employers
  • accidents and ill health
  • preventing accidents in the workplace

Who Is It Aimed At?

Ideal for employees, supervisors or managers with health and safety duties, or anyone looking to go on to achieve a Level 2 Health and Safety Qualification.

The course may also be used as part of the on-programme element of the new apprenticeship standards, supporting the knowledge, skills and behaviours apprentices need to effectively integrate into the workplace.

How does it work?
