Risk assessments

Voluntary groups are not required to undertake risk assessments; however, they are strongly advised to do so. In addition, it may be a requirement of a funding or governing body and the use of risk assessments can also provide evidence of good practice that may be used to negotiate better insurance premiums. 

The risk assessment process may seem like a chore but is a good way of raising awareness of safety issues. 

There is a risk assessment template (PDF) [48KB]  that you can download to help manage risks.
