Generic Risk Assessments highlight commonly identified hazards and control measures associated with general locations, events or activities.
Adapt this form to your own circumstances by identifying and adding further hazards/control measures relevant and appropriate to your own location or young people.
In addition complete a Specific Visit Risk Assessment to identify hazards and control measures unique to precise locations, activities, and individuals within the group.
Share and agree all risk assessments in advance with all other leaders inc. volunteer helpers and, wherever possible, involve all participants also in this process.
Annually review and revise all generic risk assessments that are used regularly (and sooner if further hazards are identified or significant incidents/near-misses occur).

IMPORTANT.
The final “Risk Rating” column should be completed by the Overall Visit Leader, and discussed with all other leaders, before giving signed approval.
The Risk Assessment should only be approved once all significant hazards have been identified, the control measures that will be implemented are
agreed, AND the overall risk ratings are considered acceptable.
In most circumstances, if the Overall Residual Risk is considered “Med” or “High”, the activity/event should be cancelled, or further control measures put in
place to reduce the risk to “Low”.
