NEBOSH Launch New Risk Management Qualification

April 2021

Astutis, a NEBOSH Gold Learning Partner, is pleased to announce that they will be delivering the new NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risks and risk Assessment at Work from 28 April 2021.

NEBOSH has partnered with Great Britain’s regulator, the Health and Safety Executive, to launch an introductory qualification that provides specfic, practical health and safety risk management skills.

The NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risk and Risk Assessment at Work is rooted in a proportional approach to risk; it provides the fundamentals people need to build an effective approach to risk management in their workplace that focuses not only on the risk assessment itself, but on the practical actions needed to control and monitor those risks to protect people from harm.

Suitable for any employee or team member in a low to medium risk setting, successful learners will understand the principles of risk management, know how to identify and evaluate hazards, complete a risk assessment, and use simple tools to control risk. Employers will ensure that their employees are trained in the Health and Safety Executive’s best practice approach to health and safety risk management.

Matt Powell-Howard, NEBOSH Head of Learning and Partnerships, said: “Risk management is about taking practical steps to protect people from real harm. It should never be a “back covering” exercise but something that can have a really positive impact on workplace health and safety. This qualification provides practical steps that anyone can take to identify, assess and control risks. We know that there are lots of demands on people’s time; that’s why we’ve really focused the content onto what really matters so that it can be completed in one day.”

Ron Macbeth, Risk Assessment Technical Lead at the Health and Safety Executive, added: “Assessment is not the product of risk management, and businesses should understand that the elimination or control of the assessed risks is the more important part of the overall process. This new qualification focuses on how organisations can effectively and sustainably manage risks in a proportionate manner.”

The NEBOSH HSE Award in Managing Risk and Risk Assessment at Work can be studied with Astutis, offering options for both virtual classroom and classroom learning.
