The risk assessment module in Stedfast has been designed to allow education and training to review all areas of their organisation and delivery.
Risk assessment is not just about health and safety. Organisations need to consider how they mitigate risk to learners, staff, programmes, finance, IT and any other area of the business.
Creating Risk Assessments
Education and training providers need to ensure they meet their health and safety duties as set out in the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
As well as having appropriate policies and procedures in place, education and training providers also need to ensure that they have undertaken suitable and sufficient risk assessment.
Risk Assessment Detail
There needs to be consideration given to how staff and learners are risked assessed.
What are the facilities that staff and learners use? Have apprenticeship placements been risk assessed?
Have risks to lone workers been assessed or where staff need to drive as part of their job? These are all management responsibilities.
Users can add detail to risk assessment plans including supporting documents and narrative sections.
