With our new e-learning course 'How to perform an office risk assessment’, it's easier, speedier and more straightforward than ever to fulfill this very necessary legal requirement. The illustrations and interactive question-answer format makes information more memorable and applicable, so users feel prepared and confident to manage risks in their offices.
Risk assessments save lives
Next time you feel mildly annoyed at having to carry out yet another risk assessment, consider this:
Since it became the law for employers to carry out risk assessments 43 years ago, workplace injuries have dropped by a whopping 85%.
In 1974, 651 people were killed at work. Last year (2016), that number was 100.
With all the paperwork that comes with health and safety, it's easy to lose sight of why we do it. Even a site as seemingly low-risk as an office can harbour numerous, potentially fatal risks if mismanaged.
Lives are literally being saved by a process that is really, with the right know-how, extremely simple.
By the end of the 'How to perform an office risk assessment' course, users will be able to:
- Understand the importance of a risk assessment - and everything it involves.
- Identify and evaluate hazards and risks.
- Know the ways of controlling various hazards and risks.
- Accurately report risk assessments.
