Risk Assessment 101 (June)

Date: 25th June 2024 Between: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm Location: Perdiswell Young Peoples' Leisure Centre, Droitwich Road, Worcester, WR3 7SN

Suitable for volunteers of all sections, Squirrels to Explorers. No pre-learning needed.

If you’ve never written a risk assessment before, or find them challenging, then this is for you!

This is a development session designed to build confidence in creating risk assessments, making them simple and effective and thus reducing the paperwork.  Areas covered will be:-

  • What purpose do they serve?
  • What do they look like?
  • Demystifying terms, untangling hazards and risks
  • How do we minimise our chance of missing something?
  • What can be done to reduce the risk?
  • What else do we need to do?
  • How and what to communicate and to who

Participants are asked to bring along examples of programmes that they would like to create a risk assessment for to enable real life scenarios to be practiced.

This is a face-to-face course taking place at Perdiswell Young Peoples’ Centre in Worcester.

Bookings will be via eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/risk-assessment-101-tickets-927825720707

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
