All off-site visits MUST be suitably risk assessed, as part of the planning and preparation process.

Risk Assessment Procedure

Schools and organisations are advised to follow the risk assessment procedure below:

At the start of the year:

1. Staff teams should download and complete all relevant Generic Risk Assessment Forms from the list linked to below (according to the type of visits and activities normally organised during the year).

View and download:
Generic Risk Assessment Forms

2. Store completed forms in a marked file in a clearly known and accessible place (e.g. staff room or dept office) and keep familiar with the agreed practice.

In preparation for each visit:

3. Visit organisers should select, download and complete any additional generic risk assessment forms that might apply.

4.
Visit organisers should complete a Specific Visit Risk Assessment to address any extra issues relevant to the specific site/group/activities involved.

5. If necessary, all group leaders should remind themselves of agreed practice by viewing relevant Generic Risk Assessments forms (especially for venues/activities that are less familiar to staff).

During each visit:

All visit leaders should always be alert to the possibility of new hazards, and be ready to take additional precautions and adapt the planned programme, as necessary (no additional written risk assessment is necessary).
