Manage Safety with Hazard & Risk Assessments in the Workplace

When it comes to managing a successful and productive business, the health, safety and happiness of employees is of high priority. By measuring and controlling factors which contribute to employee safety and well-being, companies and organisations can maximise performance via increased employee satisfaction, productivity & retention as well as reduce costs associated with accidents in the workplace.

The best way to manage and minimise hazards and risks in the workplace is to understand the workplace to the highest degree. This can be achieved through strategic knowledge in the types of dangers which can be posed by certain circumstances, machinery and behaviours, coupled with regular assessment and analysis of one’s professional environment.

Within organisations, a professional role may be dedicated to the identification, management and eradication of workplace hazards and risks. In order to qualify for these roles and perform to satisfaction, professionals will need formal training in hazard scenarios, preventative measures and protocol in the case of incident.

Workplace Risks and Hazards

courses in health and safetyThe types of workplace risks and hazards are as varied and numerous as the variations in professional environments. In identifying, assessing and managing these risks, workplace safety analysts must consider the following four elements of a danger in the workplace.

  • The type of potential injury
  • The severity of that injury
  • The likelihood that an injury would occur
  • The overall consequences resulting from that injury, incurred by the employee and organisation.

Using a step-by-step process, or methodology, helps to streamline the process of hazard and risk management by helping professionals become more efficient, thorough and accurate in their assessments and action plans. Action processes and software programs provide the necessary structure and are widely available. These will usually include a portfolio of the necessary criteria of a hazard, types of hazards, a scale for determining the likelihood and severity of a hazard and protocol for eliminating and addressing hazards.

Hazard assessment goes hand-in-hand with accident prevention, an area in which more specialised courses are available, and also Hazard and Operability courses, where potential consequences of accidents are surveyed. 

Health & Safety - Risk Assessment training courses

Risk assessment training is a critical aspect of workplace health and safety. Organisations require competent persons to carry out and gauge necessary precautions to ensure employee safety. A risk assessment training course teaches delegates to identify and bring to light areas of concern that could pose significant health hazards.

Legal requirements regarding health codes and risk assessment are constantly being changed and amended. It is compulsory that companies stay in compliance with these regulations to avoid fines and liability. More importantly, companies must observe these regulations to guarantee that their workers are provided with safe environment and are not subject to unnecessary risk.

Courses in risk assessment are designed to cover the following areas:

  • Foundations of risk assessment
  • Legislation regarding risk assessment
  • Legal obligations
  • How to identify health and safety risks
  • Appraising risk
  • Documenting risk

Accredited Courses in Health and Safety training courses

Accredited health and safety courses are governed by many important entities including NEBOSH, IOSH, CIEH, IFE, IMEA. These bodies are in place to ensure that courses meet educational requirements in code compliance and general safety issues. Accredited courses will provide a safer working environment for staff, which leads to successful and sustainable businesses. Accredited courses cover various areas including fire safety, work place safety, risk assessment, and first aid.
