Risk Assessment

The risk assessment module in Stedfast has been designed to support quality assurance activities and allow education and training providers to review all areas of their organisation and delivery including learners, staff, programmes, finance, IT and other business areas.



1 / Risk Assessments

Education and training providers need to ensure they meet their health and safety duties as set out in the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

2 / Risk Analysis

Based on the grading awarded to each identified risk, Stedfast will produce an overall risk analysis matrix that presents a simple overview of the risk levels for each plan.

3 / Risk Narrative

As well as creating risk assessment records and grades, users can also add narrative sections to each plan. They can also attach relevant policies to the assessment plan.

3 / Risk Assessment Reviews

Stedfast has a record of risk assessment dates. Users are notified when an annual review of risk assessments is required. This ensures that risk assessments are being kept up to date.

  • How does Stedfast support quality assurance?
    Stedfast supports the management of quality assurance by providing a centralised platform that is easy to access and collaborative. One of the key weaknesses that institutions have with managing their quality assurance is that it tends to be done in isolation with one or two individuals completing it. Sometimes this is widened through the use of emails and attached documents. Stedfast provides a portal for all staff to access quality assurance, and the system is designed for all staff to be involved in the quality process.
