This CDP module is a course ideal for anyone wishing to gain an introduction to the subject of health and safety risk assessment. Employees in any sector will find a working knowledge of health and safety issues to be a valuable resource for themselves and their organisations. This training will encourage employees to be proactive about risk assessment, in order to prevent accidents and ill health

Risk management involves you, the employer, looking at the risks that arise in the workplace and then putting sensible health and safety measures in place to control them. By doing this you can protect your most valuable asset, your employees, as well as members of the public from harm. During 2004/05, 220 people were killed and over 150,000 were injured at work because of a failure to manage risk.

As an employer, the law requires you to assess and manage health and safety risks - for most businesses this is not difficult to do, you should adopt the Five Steps to Risk Assessment approach to help you. This is not the only way to do a risk assessment, there are other methods that work well, particularly for more complex risks and circumstances.  However HSE believe this method is the most straightforward for most organisations. source HSE
