Risk Assessments: How to Mitigate, Assess and Control

Thursday 5 November 2020: 1pm-3pm
FREE
Via Zoom

In recent times, creative practitioners and organisations have had to become much more aware and conscious of safety procedures and assessing risk is a huge part of this. This course is ideal for anyone wanting to explore the risk assessment process and consider how they can meet current challenges around keeping people safe. We will touch on a range of contexts, both online and “in real life”, to help you to be compliant with legislation and best practice.

What will this course cover?
• Documenting risks and challenges in the work that we deliver.
• Risk assessing the workplace, for participants and employees.
• Risk assessing stress in the workplace

Over this two-hour course we will look at a recognised process to help you to consider who might be at risk, the severity of the risk and how likely it is to happen. By doing this we can understand better if risks can be reduced or removed and, in some cases, decide if the risk outweighs the benefits.

The course will also provide you with useful links and resources to apply your learning beyond the session.
