Risk Assessment Training for Community and Voluntary organisations


(Please note that this is a repeat of the last year’s September training session)

A unique opportunity has arisen for a much needed Risk Assessment Training Course for Community and Voluntary Organisation. So that those that missed out last year this is another opportunity to attend. Book early to avoid disappointment. We anticipate a great demand.

Learn how to assess risks and write a Risk Assessment at a half day course to be held at SVS on 19th March 2018, 9.45am registration for 10.00am start – 1pm. The course will be led by Malcolm Pain, who has both a National qualification and extensive experience in Health and Safety, and Shanti Wass, who as an employee of the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service who has carried out fire risk assessments.

Every year in Great Britain the Health and Safety Executive records thousands of accidents with a surprisingly high number occurring in a non-industrial setting. These include by those working for charities and organisations that support areas of the community. Some of these accidents will end in a tribunal hearing with compensation being awarded to a victim and being found directly due to the negligence of the organisation. Given that a majority of such organisations have low income streams an award of say £10,000 would have a significant and devastating impact, perhaps causing that organisation to close. Most organisations will now conduct risk assessments and issue guidance for those working for it. Unfortunately there are still organisations that have not considered risks to those within their operation.

There is a small charge of £10.00 to cover costs.
