Workshop synopsis

Have you had enough of tearing your hair out over risk assessments? Have you heard ‘what does your risk assessment say’ one too many times? Do you feel like risk assessment is shrouded in mystery? Then come and join us for this interactive CPD workshop. Taking a straightforward approach to the process this workshop aims to look at a variety of considerations throughout the risk assessment journey from:

  • Hazard spotting
  • Selecting appropriate solutions
  • Implementing control measures
  • Appropriate recording

The session will use collaborative working and problem solving to help de-mystify risk assessment and allow you to build upon your experience and inform future practice.
