E-learning courses on H&S risk assessment

New set of courses from the British Safety Council to provide formal qualification in risk assessment

A NEW set of e-learning courses that provide delegates with the knowledge required to conduct or review health and safety risk assessments have been launched by the British Safety Council.

The courses can be used by employers in all sectors of business and industry to provide managers, supervisors and team leaders with a thorough understanding of how to carry out both general health and safety risk assessments and specific assessments for fire safety, manual handling, display screen equipment and the control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH).


Upon completion of each course, delegates carry out an online risk assessment task linked to their workplace, and, subject to approval by an independent examiner, achieve a BSC Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment.

John Phillips, director of qualifications and standards at the British Safety Council, said: ‘Effective risk assessments are the cornerstone of good health and safety in the workplace, allowing employers to identify hazards and decide on the best ways of eliminating or controlling the risk of harm and accidents.

‘These new e-learning courses are fully interactive, teaching the essential stages in the risk assessment process. They are also flexible, since risk assessors can study at a time and place that suits both them and their employer without the need to attend face-to-face classroom training.’

The e-learning courses have been developed in line with HSE guidance on risk assessment and feature a risk assessment ‘simulation’ with voiceover. This provides advice on how to complete the online risk assessment task required to pass the qualification.

The Level 2 e-learning courses cost £98 + VAT (including qualification assessment fee) and discounts are available for volume purchases. For more information call the British Safety Council on tel: (0208) 741 1231; or by email using the contact form below.
