What's it all about?

The risk assessment will then determine whether sufficient controls are in place to minimise these risks. The Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment covers topics including: Why risk assessments are necessary, the legal requirements relating to risk assessments and simple processes for carrying out a risk assessment in the workplace.
