8.4 Risk Assessment

Home » 8.4 Risk Assessment

Heads of Establishment should work with staff to develop risk assessments for the range of venues likely to be used on a regular basis.  Routine and Expected visits are by their nature low risk activities and should be quick and easy to risk assess adopting a common sense approach.

Risk assessments should be reviewed on a regular basis.

Routine and Expected Visits might include venues such as museums and swimming pools. Such external providers are required to carry out a risk assessment of their own premises and activities. They must then implement appropriate measures to ensure that their activities are safe. There is no need for Visit Leaders to request copies of these risk assessments.

Sample risk assessments can be found within the Toolkit section of the website.
