This short 'BiteSIZE CPD' course has been developed by myself, Andrew Protheroe, Director and Head of Risk and Resilience at PCR Global. 

Why has the session been provided?

This micro-session was built by using the video from the 'PCR Global A - Z of Risk Management: Dynamic Risk Assessment YouTube Video'.

➡️ (Link to PCR YouTube Channel) ⬅️

As a member of a number of professional institutions, I recognise that CPD (Continuing Professional Development) is crucial to our personal and professional development.

As finding suitable content can often be time consuming,  I simply took the time to:

1) Upload the A - Z video to our eLearning Academy ⬆️  2) Add some relevant content ✏️  3) Create some questions❓❓, and  4) Ask Andrew Collins to draft a PCR BiteSIZE CPD Certificate 🎖

We hope you find the content useful and it goes some way to help you evidencing some CPD. 

As a small token of thanks, we are not asking for money for this course, but if you could Subscribe to our new YouTube Channel this really would go some way to keeping the motivation and flow of FREE content coming. Thank you 🤞

Note: This BiteSIZE micro-session does not teach you how to undertake dynamic risk assessments, it provides general information.

Although the course makes reference to UK regulations, the information provided would be useful to anyone aiming to improve their knowledge of dynamic risk assessments.


Myself and the PCR Team recognise that undertaking an online course does not ensure competence in any risk management discipline. 

The information we provide is not intended to be 'stand alone'. It is designed to form part of any training identified as required by a robust and specific risk assessment.

What to expect from this micro-session?

The PCR 'A to Z of Risk Management: D is for Dynamic Risk Assessment' from the PCR Global YouTube Channel 

Information regarding risk assessments from the UK HSE (Health and Safety Executive)

Assessment questions at the end of the CPD course 

There are many methods of evaluating CPD activities - these could be as simple as registering for a webinar. 

For our CPD we have ensured we provide a set of questions at the end of the session - this best enables us to verify as best as possible a degree of knowledge attainment or retention.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes. A CPD certificate will be provided if you score 100% in the end of CPD questions.

Who would it benefit?

The course would be of use to:

1 - Those new to Health and Safety.

2 - Security operatives.  

2 - Anyone aiming to add to their CPD!

4 - Organisations that have to evidence competence / training as part of their:

ISO, CHAS, SMAS, SafeContractor or Achilles etc.
