Risk assessments are vital to protect your workers and your business. A risk assessment should be done whenever there is a change in situation at the work place. This way, important risks will not be overlooked and it will also help to avoid repetition in the assessments that will be made in the future. This course is aimed at all persons inclusive of health and safety representatives to identify hazards and risks at the workplace.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act 85/1993, King II and Sarbanes Oxley require that risk assessments be carried out.  The employer is charged, in terms of the act to assess and respond to risk.  The employer is also under an obligation to identify all potential hazards which employees and non-employees may be exposed to as a result of all activities.
