Download our risk assessment template

It includes a blank template for you to fill in, plus some example text to give you ideas of potential hazards and possible control measures.

Examples of risk assessments 

  • Swindon Borough Council – see 'DT activities - food technology RA' on its risk assessment page
  • Health and Safety Executive (HSE) – see 'Example food preparation and service risk assessment paperwork' at the bottom of this page (it's an example of a food business's assessment, but still a useful reference)

For more on risk assessments, take a look at the HSE's risk assessment guide.

For further food and cooking resources, including activities on hygiene and safety, Food – a fact of life has free resources for a range of age groups.
