In addition to our Risk Assessments, we provide Risk Checklist questions in every e-Learning course.
By asking simple yes/no questions specifically in relation to your organisation’s health & safety requirements, administrators are able to mange, assess and identify risks by using a simple traffic light system. See an example below…
How does the Risk Checklist work?
Risk-check-lists are built within every course, or can be added yourself if you are using our Course Creator tool.
Each one can be tailored, fully edited and personalised by the administrator of the system so the check-list questions will be relevant to your specific organisation.
Learners take the course at their own pace and complete a number of mini quizzes throughout to test comprehension of the material.
At the end of the course they move onto a Risk Check-list which asks questions specifically tailored to your business, such as “Have you seen the health and safety policy?” or “Do you know know where your fire assembly point is?”
On answering these questions, the administrator might have selected certain questions that are more critical than others.
For example, if the administrator has selected “Have you had your health and safety training?” as a high risk question then whenever any one selects ‘no’ as their answer to that question, the administrator will be flagged an immediate response so they can address the risk immediately, and/or go about to ‘manage’ that risk through the system.
Users also have the option of filling out comment boxes for each question for anything they are unsure of or if they feel that their answer requires more than just a simple yes or no.
For example, “Yes. I have been shown where my Health & Safety Policy is kept but I would like to keep a copy for myself.” In this instance the administrator will see this response and from the system, they can send a copy of the policy directly to the user.
What happens next?
Based on the answers to these questions, the user will be assigned a risk rating which then notifies the administrator for them to assess.
Through the easy to read traffic light system administrators/ managers can assess all risks either by the individual, course or department- this allows for the correct and appropriate actions to be decided to ensure all potential risks are minimised and eliminated
The additional Risk Management feature of a ‘Risk Check-list’ is effective and highly efficient. Upon completion of the check-list, learners then move onto the Self-Test where they test and prove their knowledge and comprehension of the course material and they are finally told their results – pass or fail.
Self- test questions can be amended by the administrator but are very rarely amended. This is because RoSPA and CPD have approved the questions as they are as standard in the course and they feel being able to answer the questions will illustrate a sound understanding of the material and therefore course.
