Improving your health related risk assessments – Buxton, 8 June 2016

Date and location

8 June 2016, Health and Safety Laboratory, Harpur Hill, Buxton,
Derbyshire SK17 9JN

Event overview

This course is designed to help the general HS practitioner better understand the ‘invisible’ risks associated with hazardous substances, noise and vibration and aims to provide a more confident approach to these issues. The course will explain how to conduct risk assessments to meet legal requirements. More importantly, the course will explain how risk assessment should fit into an overall risk management programme. We aim to debunk the myth that risk assessment is a pointless, bureaucratic burden by showing that effective actions to reduce harm, and protect the health of workers, should all flow from an effective risk assessment process.

Risk assessment to meet the requirements of:

  • The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations
  • The Control of Noise at Work Regulations
  • The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations

The role of risk assessment in effective health risk management:

  • How to prioritise action
  • How to ensure effectiveness of risk assessment

Who should attend?

Anyone responsible for managing health and safety risks in the workplace would benefit from attending this course.
