Course Risk Assessment
WORKING HORSES IN WOODLANDS
Underwriting this risk assessment is the principle that all participants are responsible for their own health and safety and must not agree to undertake any task that they do not feel confident or competent to do.
Other participants are on hand to assist and support, thereby reducing risks. Training in identifying hazards and risks runs through the whole training course and specific training in drawing up risk assessments is also included. A pro-forma risk assessment is included in the course handout pack. Any risk not identified that becomes apparent to any participant must be reported immediately to the course tutor.
