A Useful Guide to Risk Assessment


Price is per download of the e-book. 20% VAT added in the UK.

In A Useful Guide to Risk Assessment James and Steve cover how to identify, assess and manage risk in its broadest sense.  They illustrate their points with case studies. Whilst many of these relate to health and safety, the principles illustrated apply much more widely.  It is their belief that a cultural shift is needed that will bring about a new approach to risk assessment, reflecting its importance to the way we live and work today.

Working through this Useful Guide gives you the skills and tools you need to assess whether the risk is worth the potential gain.
