You will use national and international examples to carry out risk assessments, and from these, evaluate the risks posed by various hazards.
The unit will provide you with an in-depth understanding of risk prevention, control and public safety by providing opportunities to think about how useful (or limiting) risk assessments and risk management strategies are in making decisions about whether to take those risks.
