Horizon Risk Consultancy Ltd, a NEBOSH Gold Learning Partner, is pleased to announce that they will be delivering the new NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risks and risk Assessment at Work from 28 April 2021.
The NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risks and Risk Assessment at Work is a one-day, introductory level qualification jointly developed with the health and safety regulator for Great Britain, the Health and Safety Executive. It is structured around the Health and Safety Executive’s approach to controlling the risks caused by workplace hazards.
The NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risk and Risk Assessment at Work provides a proportional approach to risk management; it provides the fundamentals people need to build an effective approach to risk management in their workplace that focuses not only on the risk assessment itself, but on the practical actions needed to control and monitor those risks in order to protect people from harm.
Suitable for any employee or team member in a low to medium risk setting, successful learners will understand the principles of risk management, know how to identify and evaluate hazards, complete a risk assessment and be able to use simple tools to control risk. For employers, they will have the assurance that their employees are trained in the Health and Safety Executive’s best practice approach to health and safety risk management.
Ron Macbeth, Risk Assessment Technical Lead at the Health and Safety Executive, said: “Assessment is not the end product of risk management, and businesses should understand that the elimination or control of the assessed risks is the more important part of the overall process. This new qualification focuses on how organisations can effectively and sustainably manage risks in a proportionate manner.”
The NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risks and risk Assessment at Work qualification can be studied with Horizon Risk Consultancy Ltd, offering options for both virtual classroom and distance learning.
