Health & Safety Risk Assessment Course

Risk Assessment training from Agility is designed to give managers, supervisors and safety representatives the skills to assess hazards and risks within their workplace and to give them the knowledge to produce suitable and sufficient risk assessments.

The level 2 & 3 awards were created in response to industry requirements for all employees to be risk aware. Although not all employees will be expected to undertake risk assessments, they may be asked to contribute to the process in order to protect their own health and safety and that of others.
