Develop straightforward, practical health and safety risk management skills so you can go beyond risk assessments, to effectively control the health and safety risks caused by hazards in your workplace.

The fee for staff is £230, which covers costs such as NEBOSH registration and examination fees. As we incur these costs in advance, please note that your School or Unit will be charged for the course whether or not you attend.

The NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risks and Risk Assessment at Work is ideal for anyone involved in managing workplace health and safety risks including those who undertake risk assessments.

  • Identify hazards and be aware of some of the resources that can help
  • Assess risks in low to medium risk premises using simple HSE tools
