Improving Your Health Related Risk Assessments
HSL is to run a 1 day course on Improving Your Health Related Risk Assessments.
9 March 2017
It is now widely recognised that occupational disease causes far
more harm in Great Britain than accidents relating to safety
failings. Good quality risk assessments for health related issues
are central to effective health risk management. However, there is
often less confidence and understanding amongst general health and
safety practitioners when it comes to the 'health' side of health
This course is designed to help the general H&S practitioner
better understand the 'invisible' risks associated with hazardous
substances, noise and vibration and aims to provide a more
confident approach to these issues. The course will explain
how to conduct risk assessments to meet legal requirements. More
importantly, the course will explain how risk assessment should fit
into an overall risk management programme. We aim to debunk the
myth that risk assessment is a pointless, bureaucratic burden by
showing that effective actions to reduce harm, and protect the
health of workers, should all flow from an effective risk
The course will cover
Risk assessment to meet the requirements of:
- The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)
- The Control of Noise at Work Regulations
- The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations
- The role of risk assessment in effective health risk
- How to identify health risks
- How to prioritise action
- How to ensure effectiveness of risk assessment
Who should attend?
Anyone responsible for managing health and safety risks in the
workplace would benefit from attending this course.
The course will be run at the Health & Safety Laboratory in the
spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and
has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester
Details of hotels in the Buxton area can be found at www.visitpeakdistrict.com
