Course Description

The control of risks is essential to secure and maintain a healthy and safe workplace, which complies with the relevant legal requirements and corporate expectations. This course covers the principles that should be adopted when deciding on suitable measures to eliminate or control both acute and chronic risks to the health and safety of people at work.

The principles of control can be applied to both health risks and safety risks, although health risks have some distinctive features that require a special approach.

Course Objectives

  • To understand when risks have been analyzed and assessed, and how decisions can be made about workplace precautions

  • To appreciate how all final decisions about risk control methods must take into account the relevant legal requirements, which establish minimum levels of risk prevention and/or control.

  • To recognize that many requirements are qualified by the words, ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’; These require an assessment of cost, along with information about relative costs

  • Effectiveness and reliability of different control measures
