Introduction to Risk Assessment E-learning

Risk assessment is a systematic method of looking at work activities and considering the things that could cause significant harm to people, property or the environment. The most important purpose of risk assessments is to help prevent accidents and ensure the safety of employees and anyone affected by workplace activities.
