HSE Inspectors' Guide to Risk Management: Risk Assessment and Control


150 Corporation Street
B4 6TB

Other available dates: email us to book


This workshop will be delivered by a senior HSE inspector with more than 25 years of experience, and is a rare opportunity to understand your regulator by seeing the world through an inspector's eyes.

You will learn: how HSE examines and uses employers' risk assessments; the common errors that HSE finds in the risk assessment process; and how to use this information to manage risks more effectively and avoid enforcement action.

The course will cover:

  • The different types of risk assessments required under health and safety legislation.
  • How HSE inspectors use risk assessments during inspections and investigations, and how they form judgements about whether risks are being adequately controlled.
  • The common errors that inspectors find in risk assessments and in how businesses use them to manage risks.
  • The circumstances where an inadequate risk assessment may cause an Inspector to take enforcement action, and what form that action is likely to take.
  • How to improve your risk assessment processes, manage risks better and avoid formal or informal action.
