QNUK Level 2 Award in Principles of Workplace Risk Assessment (RQF)  

Price: £150.00 + VAT

Course Description

The QNUK Level 2 Award in Principals of Workplace Risk Assessment (RQF) was designed in response to industry requirements for employees to be risk aware. Although not all employees will be expected to undertake risk assessments themselves, they may be asked to contribute to the process and will be expected to act always to protect their own health and safety and that of others.

Its main purpose is to enable learners to understand the basic principles of risk assessment. This qualification will, therefore, give all employees the ability to contribute to the process and act always to protect their own health and safety and that of others.

Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations employers have a legal duty to make suitable and sufficient assessment of risks to the health and safety of employees and all those who may be affected.  Employers are obliged to appoint a competent person to assist in meeting this legal requirement.

This course will give a broad introduction to the main areas of risk assessment using scenario based learning to raise awareness and develop an understanding of how to deal with hazards and risks in the workplace.

The responsibility may be for the whole workplace or a specific department/area.
