Practical Risk Assessment Training

We provide short practical sessions to enable individuals to complete risk assessments for their own work areas or for the activities they undertake.

These can be general courses covering the process and paperwork with general examples but are often tailored to specific Colleges, Departments or groups of staff with examples of specific activities or tasks such as student placements or grounds and garden maintenance work.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not offer courses to non-Bangor University staff.

Who should participate?

All staff who participate in risk assessments for their own work or activities that they may undertake. Any staff who assist Students to complete risk assessments for their projects.

The aim of the workshop

To show how you can complete a risk assessment to suit your work or activity - without creating a pile of paperwork.
To be able to explain and help students to complete risk assessments for the projects that they undertake
