Generic risk assessment templates
Use these generic risk assessment templates – from the HSE, a local authority and a university – to help you create your own.
If you're looking for a model risk assessment policy, see this article, which includes examples from other schools. You can also download a checklist of statutory and mandatory risk assessments for your school.
Use a template and see examples from the HSE
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has a generic risk assessment template that can be adapted for use in any workplace (see section 3). Use the template to keep a record of:
- How you're controlling risks
- Who might be harmed in your workplace
- Further actions you may need to take, and who will take them
The same page has typical example assessments you can download. There's no example for a school, but you may find elements of the other examples useful.
