HSE reveals agenda for upcoming webinar

24 May 2021

ON 25 May 2021 at 10:30am HSM will be hosting a free-to-attend webinar with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) on managing risk from assessment to control - bringing your risk assessment to life

Effective risk management systems allow an organisation, large or small, to meet its legal requirements in protecting workers by not only identifying risk but putting in place measures to ensure adequate risk controls. Too often risk assessment becomes a tick-box exercise but it’s vitally important that the organisation is mindful of the risks that are identified and takes ongoing action to monitor and manage them. This strong focus on worker health and safety, in turn, benefits organisational performance.

Supported by Health and Safety Matters magazine, the Health and Safety Executive are offering this free webinar to organisations looking to understand and control different types of risks in their workplaces. This webinar will feature a panel of experts from HSE including HM Health and Safety Inspectors, and NEBOSH who will discuss current guidance and principles in tackling risk. We’ll be taking questions during the webinar and highlighting resources, products and services that can help you build a successful risk management programme that protects employees from harm.






Webinar start

Mark Sennett, Managing Editor of Health and Safety Matters magazine will welcome us to this unique webinar.
