About the session

Health Risk Management is an essential part of any organisation’s health and safety strategy and should follow the same risk management approach: identification and assessment of risk, controlling exposure, training, health surveillance and review. A health risk assessment focuses specifically on the health risks within the workplace that are not always evident without directed attention. It is the basis for deciding what response is needed to eliminate, control and minimise health risks within your working environment and should be undertaken by those who understand the risks.
