Notes to accompany General Risk Assessment Form

It is strongly recommended that all the tutors/assessors/associates/staff use this form all new assessments, and when existing assessments are being substantially revised.

    1. Date:

Insert date that assessment form is completed.  The assessment must be valid on that day and subsequent days, unless circumstances change and/or amendments are necessary.

    1. Completed by:

Insert the name and signature of the assessor/writer/person updating the document. 

    1. Reviewed by.

Insert the name of the person who has reviewed and agreed that the content of the document is up to date at the time of document production.

    1. Location:

Insert details of the premise’s location.

    1. Review date:

Insert details of when the assessment will be reviewed as a matter of routine.  This might be in 1 years’ time, at the end of a short programme of work or longer period if risks are known to be stable.  Note that any assessment must be reviewed if there are any significant changes – to the work activity, the vicinity, the people exposed to the risk, etc.

    1. Task:

Insert a brief summary of the task, e.g. Regular hand washing. 

    1. Hazard:

For each activity, list the hazards. e.g. Spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus

    1. Initial Risk Level.

Input the risk level score prior to the introduction of control measures (where required).

High: if injury is likely to arise (e.g. there have been previous incidents or the situation looks like an accident waiting to happen) and that injury might be serious (broken bones, trip to the hospital, loss of consciousness) or even a fatality.

Medium: if it is more likely that harm might actually occur and the outcome could be more serious (e.g. some time off work, or a minor physical injury).

Low: if it is most unlikely that harm would arise under the controlled conditions listed and even if exposure occurred, the injury would be relatively slight.

  1. Who might be harmed / persons at risk:

Insert everyone who might be affected by the activity – remember those who are not immediately involved in the work, including cleaners, young persons on work experience, maintenance contractors, Estate’s personnel carrying out routine maintenance and other work. Remember also that the risks for different groups will vary.  Vulnerable groups could include someone who is pregnant or employees and students with known disabilities or health conditions (this is not a definitive list).

  1. Control measures put in place to control the risk:

List all measures that have been introduced to minimise the risk.  Many of these will have been implemented for other reasons but should nevertheless be recognised as means of controlling risk. 

  1. Revised Risk Level.

Input the revised risk level score following the introduction of control measures (where required).
