Replacement Online Risk Awareness (RAW) Safety Training Module

Course Overview    

The new version of the Risk Awareness (RAW) online course is aimed at the same level as the previous version.

For those starting out on a production and in a non-managerial role, the course gives users an introduction to health and safety in production. It will also continue to act as a precursor to the Risk Management of Productions course (formerly titled Safe Management of Productions) for those with designated responsibilities for formal risk assessments.

The course aims to introduce candidates to safety basics such as legal requirements and risk assessment. It also aims to raise the awareness of health and safety on a production shoot, encourage crew to recognise when something is wrong and to change personal behaviours and attitudes towards health and safety while at work; to encourage behaviour-based safety.

Duration: 60 minutes typically
