Competent Risk Assessment..
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state that an employer:
How can you demonstrate you are "competent"? The law is vague: "a person shall be regarded as competent where he (sic) has sufficient training and experience or knowledge or other qualities to enable him to properly assist in undertaking the measures." (7,5)
We have produced a H&S/Hazards Risk Assessment SCORM compliant e-learning programme @ Level 3.
How H&S Risk Assessments can be developed for Environmental Risk Assessments..
You can use the techniques for carrying out a Health and Safety Risk Assessment to carry out an Environmental Risk Assessment. You do not have to be a consultant to carry out an environmental risk assessment. We can all do it, especially if we have already experience of risk assessment in Health & Safety. It is all a matter of assessing not the risks of 'Hazards' (as in H&S) but the risks of 'Impacts' (on Environment). For more which now includes online Environmental Risk Assessment individual learning, using H&S NOSs for Risk Assessment adapted to fit the DEFRA Environmental Risk Assessment. If you would like to be involved, please contact us. Check out Environmental Organisation at various levels.
