To create your own risk assessment, please download this blank Word document. Use the words in the above examples as starting points, but please remember that each risk assessment you create will need to be completed according to your specific activities, girl experience and people needs - because every situation is different!Download
Remember, it is necessary to complete risk assessments in order to identify possible hazards and to ensure you are abiding by the Girlguiding risk assessment policy. Once the risk assessment is completed you need to consider whether you can still go ahead with the event or activity by managing the risk to keep girls safe, whether changes need to be made to make the event or activity safer, or whether the event or activity has to be cancelled.
Reminder: risk assessments should be reviewed regularly if they have been written for unit meetings and repeated activities.
