Group booking (face-to-face) course

Participants will learn to complete JSA’s and risk assessments. This training is very workplace specific. We will look at your risk assessment processes and the hazards that are specific to your workplace. We will cover different methods of risk controls and the various consequences and categories of risk. We will examine the hierarchy of hazard controls as well as devising tailored risk reduction strategies.

During the course we will complete several practical risk assessments and look at different methods for risk elimination and risk control. We will complete many of the practical tasks in a group environment on actual work tasks that company personnel undertake.
