By law every employer must conduct a risk assessment on the work their employees do

If the company or organisation employs more than five employees, then the results should be recorded. Aside from keeping you, your employees, and anyone visiting your premises safe, conducting risk assessments helps identify risks which in turn helps develop health & safety management plans. Having up to date and comprehensive health & safety policies and procedures in place helps companies stay legally compliant.

What Will You Learn?

This course includes everything you need to complete a thorough risk assessment for a transport operation including COVID-19 risk assessment templates.

We will take you through the process of completing a full risk assessment and after completing this course you will be able to carry out a risk assessment on your organisation and create a full risk assessment document that also covers COVID-19 risks.
