Risk Assessments

Risk Assessments

ETD’s risk assessment training will show you how to stay safe in the workplace while complying with the law. 

Online risk assessments are key to health and safety, especially when it comes to reducing injuries and illnesses. Both employers and the self-employed must carry out risk assessments to protect the safety of everyone on work premises. These risk assessments also enable employers and the self-employed to comply with the law. Meanwhile, all employees must fulfil the legislation, too. 

But understanding the risk assessments processes that we must follow can be confusing. Luckily, ETD’s course makes it easy to understand the legal requirements and how to meet them when it comes to risk assessing. On completion of this course, users will understand why risk assessments are important, the definitions of hazards and risks and the key steps involved in completing an online risk assessment.
