About the Webinar
Regular risk assessments are an OHS Act requirement.
Health and Safety Risk Assessments or HIRA (Hazard Identification Risk Assessment) form a critical part of all Health & Safety management systems and must be conducted in all work areas. Risk assessments highlight risks and then categorise, minimise and mitigate these risks to ensure a safer working environment and form part of an injury prevention program for all employees.

All our training instructors are paramedics registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, and have extensive practical operational experience and have specialised in First Aid, Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), Firefighting and H&S training. Our training courses contain the latest theoretical course content and extensive practical content and scenario training, thereby ensuring both theoretical and practical exposure.
The employer of a workplace needs to ensure that Risk Assessments are conducted when the need arises to highlight potential hazards, such as after a hazardous incident has occurred, or when the workplace building is and has been altered, or when new machinery and procedures have been implemented. The risk assessor needs to attend the Risk Assessment course to understand the correct procedures and necessary processes to follow.
Certificates are issued after successful completion of a theoretical competency assessment.
