NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risks and Risk Assessment at Work

Live Online

16 October 2024 - 17 October 2024


HSE and NEBOSH have jointly developed a one-day qualification structured around HSE's approach to controlling the risks caused by workplace hazards. This qualification has been designed to assist employees or volunteers involved in managing workplace risks and who undertake risk assessments, to confidently identify sensible and proportionate precautions to control the risks in the workplace.

"Assessment is not the end product of risk management, and businesses should understand that elimination or control of the assessed risks is the more important part of the overall process. This new qualification focuses on how organisations can effectively and sustainably manage risks in a proportionate manner."

Ron Macbeth, Risk Assessment Technical Lead at HSE

Learning outcomes

Delegates will be provided with information that will help them to:

  • Understand the reasons for managing health and safety risks
  • Understand the importance of consultation with relevant workers
  • Know how to effectively manage risk, including the importance of competence for those involved in identifying, understanding and controlling risks
  • Know where to find sources of information to help identify and manage risk
  • Use HSE's risk assessment tools

What the course will cover

This course teaches delegates how to identify hazards, the resources that can help and how to assess risks in low-to-medium risk premises using simple HSE tools. The course covers how to evaluate risks in a proportionate and sensible manner, how to identify suitable control measures and how to develop straightforward practical skills to manage workplace risks. Delegates will gain confidence in their risk assessment capabilities which will help them contribute to the creation of a safer and healthier workplace as soon as they return to work.
