Risk Management Training Overview

Risk Management Training training provided by our Safety Consultants will assist with the skills and knowledge required to contribute to WHS risk management. This includes the processes for identifying work health and safety (WHS) hazards and assessing and controlling the risk relating to those identified hazards. It involves contributing to the development, implementation and evaluation of risk controls according to legislative and organisational requirements.

Through presentations; group discussions with the Safety Consultant and role playing the participants will learn the risk assessment process. Our training can be very workplace specific, and we can look at your risk assessment processes and the hazards that are specific to your workplace. We can use your processes and Job Safety Analysis documents. The training covers different methods of risk controls and the various consequences and categories of risk. The training centers on the standard WHS practices as adopted from Safe Work Australia.

During the course the Safety Consultant will complete 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 the workers undertake.

This course is designed to help workers to understand how they can contribute to risk management in the workplace and how they are responsible for minimizing that risk. This training is especially helpful to Health and Safety Representatives to better understand the legislation so that they can assist Management to develop strategies to protect workers.
