Tips for completing a thorough risk assessment

  • Try and have the risk assessment to the WHS Officer 2 weeks before the event takes place (if possible).
  • Obtain any relevant information from the venue being visited or the organisation coming on site (such as any hazards associated with the venue or activity etc.)
  • Do your own research. Google or ask another staff member who may have been part of the excursion/incursion/event previously & find out what their experiences were and any hazards they may have identified.
  • A typical risk assessment may have information on travel arrangements, location, insurance, staff accreditation, activities, age group, equipment, supervision, access, egress, emergencies, health requirements, first aid, foreseeable/potential risks & what happens during inclement weather or when schedules need to be altered.
  • Don’t just copy and paste a previous risk assessment. Think about what are the hazards a person may be exposed to, what are the risks of something causing harm and how can we eliminate and/or mitigate the hazard and risk?
  • Control strategies need to be documented & the staff member/s involved are responsible to make sure the control measures are put into place.
  • Complete the Monitor and Review section asap after the event has taken place and return to the WHS Officer.
