This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to handle different types of risks and hazards in the workplace. We will introduce and educate you on how to apply the risk matrix table in your workplace. You will be exposed to a matrix system used during risk assessment to define the level of risk by considering the category of probability or likelihood against the category of consequence severity. This is a simple mechanism to increase visibility of risks and assist management decision making. Bearing in mind that under the Risk Management Regulations, every organization is required to conduct Risk Management for its workplace regularly, makes this course a must for everyone.
