The aim of this course is to give you the tools to apply the risk assessment process to fieldwork activities.

This course is recommended for health and safety coordinators and equivalent roles involved in the fieldwork risk assessment process. You should apply for this course if you feel you have a good understanding of the risk assessment process. If unsure, we would advise that you book on the Introduction to risk assessment (HC357) course first.
