Risk Assessment and Management of the Workplace

This training package on risk assessment and management at the workplace seeks primarily to empower owners and managers of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to take action themselves to improve safety and health conditions in their workplaces.

Work-related injuries and ill health can ruin lives and affect businesses if output is lost, machinery damaged, insurance costs increase, etc. This is something that small businesses, particularly vulnerable to the impact of occupational accidents and work-related ill health, cannot afford – morally and economically. It is precisely to avoid this sort of situation that this training package has been devised.
