1 If using a ‘Generic’ risk assessment, Assessors and Line Managers are to satisfy themselves that the assessment is valid for the task and that all significant hazards
have been identified and assessed. If additional hazards are identified they are to be recorded and attached to the Generic assessment.
2 Line Managers are to note that they are responsible for production of the risk assessment and that they are signing to indicate that the risk assessment is suitable and
sufficient and they consider the risks to be acceptable.
High Common, regular or frequent occurrence. 3 3 Med 6 High 9 High
Medium Occasional occurrence. 2 2 Low 4 Med 6 High
Low Rare or improbable occurrence. 1 1 Low 2 Low 3 Med
1 2 3
Risk Matrix Minor injury or illness. Serious injury or illness. Fatalities, major injury or illness.
Likelihood X Consequence Low Medium High
When recording the Risk Rating ensure that both the Likelihood and Consequence scores are included.
High Improve control measures; consider stopping work. Conducting work at this level of risk is to be reported up the Line Management / Command chain.
Medium Review control measures and improve if reasonably practicable to do so, consider alternative ways of working.
Low Maintain control measures and review if there are any changes.
4 Record the residual Risk Rating to demonstrate that the risk has been reduced to an acceptable level; record Likelihood and Consequence scores.
5 Risk Assessments are to be reviewed:
If there is reason to doubt the effectiveness of the assessment.
Following an accident or near miss.
Following significant changes to the task, process, procedure or Line Management.
Following the introduction of more vulnerable personnel.
If “Generic” prior to use.
METHOD STATEMENT – DCCT
1. The above is a generic risk assessment. A dynamic risk assessment must be done by the activity commander on arrival using
the format below. This should take into account variations in ground, weather and participants. The following points are to be
observed whilst operating the activity:
All DCCT equipment is overseen by the Military Laser Safety committee who are based at MOD Abbey Wood. It is their job
to maintain all DCCT as it contains laser equipment. The laser hazard from the DCCT laser is low; however any activity
commander using the equipment is to ensure that the regulations written by the above organisation is clearly displayed. If
they have any doubts as to the safety of the equipment they are to contact the person on site responsible for the DCCT.
Only a duly qualified custodian may run the range. No qualification = no activity.
The activity commander/Range Conducting Officer is to control all movement within the DCCT. The area is to be kept clear
of equipment that may cause trip hazards. It is a range and should be run as such. The activity commander should act as
RCO (Range Conducting Officer) – the custodian cannot do both.
Ideally each firer should have a safety supervisor, but the minimum is 1 supervisor for 2 firers.
Firers are to be thoroughly briefed before the activity starts.
Any breakages/damages /technical problems are to be reported in writing at the end of practice to the person on site
responsible for the equipment.
DYNAMIC RISK ASSESSMENT PROFORMA
This format is to be used to complement the Generic Risk Assessment (RA). The suggested headings in italics are not exhaustive. The Activity
Commander needs to consider how these factors will create additional risk (if any) and what extra control measures they need to apply.
