Risk Assessment for Road Safety Practitioners


Road Safety Practitioners are increasingly having to carry out Risk Assessments in their daily work.  These assessments can be generic within an activity, for example cycle training, or specific to a location, for example a walking bus route.  This course examines how to spot hazards, how to identify who is at risk and how to evaluate levels of risk.  The importance of documentation and Risk Assessment policy is also described.
