Risk Assessments

The College has a responsibility for the Health and Safety of members, its staff, visitors and contractors.

In fulfilling that responsibility Heads of Department and others organising events or arranging for work to be carried out should carry out risk assessments beforehand, and review these if circumstances change.

The following links provide guidance and examples which may be helpful. Further assistance in this matter is available from the Development Officer or Facilities Manager should it be required.
