NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risks and Risk Assessment at Work

 

Other available dates: email us to book

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and NEBOSH have jointly developed a new one day qualification structured around HSE's approach to controlling the risks caused by workplace hazards.

This qualification has been designed to assist staff 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
