The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to conduct suitable and sufficient risk assessments. The Level 2 Certificate in Risk Assessment provides formal recognition of an individual’s ability to undertake such a risk assessment in line with the Health and Safety Executive’s Five Steps to Risk Assessment. Accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) at Level 2 in the National Qualifications Framework.

This is a nationally-recognised, transferable qualification based on the national occupational standards. This award allows employers to get more of their staff properly qualified to carry out risk assessments, helping them to meet their legal obligations.
The course is delivered using up-to-date and practical training, supplemented with completely new learning materials and specially developed interactive learning sessions.
Assessment is administered by the BSC Examinations department and is based around a fit for purpose task related directly to the candidate’s workplace, testing the application of learning in a practical context. Assessments are booked directly with the British Safety Council upon completion of the course.

Course Framework:
Our training utilises the very latest learning methods, with special emphasis on participative and interactive techniques. Overall, the aim of our training is to share knowledge and practical experience and, through tutor-led sessions, build on that experience so that every participant is able to manage risk assessment effectively and realistically.
