Risk Assessment

Thu, 14 Jan 2021 10:00

Risk assessment is one of the key legal requirements that parish and town councils are required to carry out and probably the one that is the least well understood. This course aims to demystify the subject by explaining what the law requires and then providing practical guidance on how to carry out a risk assessment, using actual examples from the parish and town council sector. The course tutor, John Marshall is a working Parish Clerk as well as an NCALC Internal Auditor who worked for many years in risk assessment. The course is run as an interactive event that encourages active participation by delegates. At the end of the course, delegates will understand when and how to conduct a risk assessment and will have created a model risk assessment covering the common core business risks, including health and safety risks that exist in the sector.

Audience
This course is suitable for both Clerks and Councillors
