The Birmingham Safety and Health Expo 2012will run from 15th-17th May at the NEC this year. Products and services will be on display from exhibitors across the sector and there will be information about the latest in workplace health and safety and advice on legislation. This is the ideal place to find out about how companies working with the public and local authorities should be engaging with health and safety today. Health and safety training suppliers will be at the Expo, including market leaders RRC Training, who will be giving away a limited number of courses from their RRC Online range of’Rapid e-Learning’ programmes. The free course offer includes the ever popular and important’Risk Assessment’ title.
Should conker fights and sack races be banned for safety reasons? Should goggles be banned in swimming pools? In our litigious society, many people are under the impression that these activities could warrant liability should an incident occur. The fact is that incidents of safety and health risks due to participation in sack races and conker fights, or issues caused by goggles in pools are few. All that is needed is a proper risk assessment of such activities.
The RRC Training company has created a new Risk Assessment course to teach individuals how to assess risk in any given situation. The course consists of six hours of multimedia presentations and e-learning material providing a primer on assessing risk in five steps. The course provides students with a risk assessment toolbox. The e-learning course is a cost effective, interesting and innovative method for organisations and individuals to provide training for themselves or their employees in assessing risk whatever the circumstances.
RRC’s Risk Assessment training course is perfect for companies who have staff that work with the public. The Risk Assessment training course is also great for those employed in health care, schools and government agencies. There is no need to ban activities without a valid reason. Teach employees to apply risk assessment to properly determine the health and safety risks instead. The Risk Assessment training course teaches students actual health and safety risks and how to spot them. In addition, the course teaches students to apply the five step assessment method.
Using the most innovative, new e-learning techniques, such as real world scenarios and situations, along with interactive content and animations, the RRC Risk Assessment training course is both engaging and effective. The course is a viable alternative to classroom training, or may be used in a classroom setting. The course is designed for anyone who works with the public and must assess situations on a regular basis.
RRC’s Director of Training, Gary Fallaize stands by the e-learning course as an innovative and cost-effective way to teach assessment of risk for companies and governmental organisations. Mr. Fallaize argues that many people fear the”compensation culture” and automatically say”no” to activities that do not pose a health or safety risk. Taking this course educates individuals about true health and safety concerns, as well as how to assess risk in any given situation.
The Risk Assessment course may be delivered over the Internet and is available to groups and individuals day or night. The Risk Assessment course takes approximately six hours to complete. Upon completion, the student will be offered the chance to take a final assessment. Provided the student passes the final assessment, they are provided with a certificate of completion for the course. A downloadable pamphlet is provided to any student who completes the course.
