Risk Assessments

Completing risk assessments for services and tasks

For some services and tasks you'll need to complete a risk assessment to make sure you are taking reasonable steps to prevent people coming to any harm.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) provides advice and guidance for completing a risk assessment. A good place to start is HSE's frequently asked questions, which should answer most of your questions.

The HSE also provide a risk assessment template, to help you complete your own. You'll need to remove the example and adapt the form to make sure that it applies to the activity you are completing the risk assessment for.

You should bring any completed risk assessments to your meeting with the Building Communities Together Team to discuss your Devolution Deal. You can find out more about shaping your Devolution Deal with us.
