Highfield Level 2 Award in Risk Assessment

The objective of the qualification is to prepare learners to be able to know the requirements of Risk assessment and the benefits in any environment.

When teaching this course, we conduct practical risk assessments in small groups and write up our findings.

If learners are coming from a maritime environment we will also ensure that we discuss the requirements of Risk assessment in the maritime environment, such as Safety Management Systems, Code of Safe working practices and the role that the MCA play in Health and Safety.
