  • Stopping incidents and ill-health before they happen

  • Stopping incidents from repeating themselves

  • Dealing with common workplace hazards

  • Keeping an eye on how things are going

 Unit SS2: General workplace risk assessment



Unit SS1:General health and safety awareness

  • Assessment Type: Multi-format examination. This multi-format assessment will include a range of different                                               question types.  

  • Assessment Time:  30 minutes

  • Pass Standards:       60%  (18 marks out of a possible 30).


Unit SS2: General workplace risk assessment
