Risk Assessment Training for Schools and Colleges

Course Overview

This course is designed as an introduction to Risk Assessment, which includes the identification of reasonably foreseeable hazards and how to implement control measures  to reduce risk, so far as is reasonably practical.

School employers should always take a common sense and proportionate approach, remembering that in schools risk assessment and risk management are tools to enable children to undertake activities safely, and not prevent activities from taking place. Sensible risk management cannot remove risk altogether but it should avoid needless or unhelpful paperwork.
