This Task Risk Assessment training course provides delegates with a proven task risk assessment model that is based on good practices designed to be practical and easy to use.
Task Risk Assessment is an evaluation of the hazards that are present whilst performing a task and the best way to mitigate the risks. Generally, life and the working environment are full of hazards. Personnel must be able to realize what these hazards are, where these hazards are found, and how they can be affected by the hazards.
Task Risk assessment is a modern proactive approach to incident prevention. Whatever mitigation measures are put in place there will always remain a level of residual risk. However, the importance is to maintain the residual risks at a level that is ‘As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP)’ and this can be achieved through the implementation of good practice guidelines that are known. In order to undertake a Task Risk Assessment, it is necessary to have knowledge of what hazards exist and how the risk from these hazards can be minimized.

The objective is not to eliminate hazards (this may be impossible) but to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. This can only be achieved when the hazards and the consequences from a hazardous event are clearly understood.
