Wasn't there one on one of the morris organisations' websites? I'm sure it was discussed on MDDL recently.

I'll have a look through my recent work bumph for you.

There's a lot of nonsense talked about risk assessments. The main purpose of them, when putting on events, is to ensure that any possible risks to participants or viewers of the event, arising from the event itself, have been considered.

So - set out briefly what the event will consist of. Go through it, noting any hazards which you think might occur - there may well be none - and describe briefly what steps you will take to ensure that any hazards that you anticipate might happen.

You can't mitigate for every eventually so, in the main, it's common sense. If you're setting up equipment - cables, wiring, etc. - just note that they will be there, that they might constitute a hazard, and that you've taken all reasonable precautions (covers, tape, etc.) to make them safe.

Sorry - forgot to add: the written risk assessment, signed by you (or whoever) shows the organisers and the people of the H&SE that everything that should have been taken into consideration has been taken into consideration.

The sad thing with 'risk assessments' is that they have become a form to be completed. What is really required is to consider what it is you propose that could cause harm or injury, and describe how you will prevent such harm or injury.

It could be as little as a sentence, or several manuals.

Go over to the Voluntary Arts Network site and do a search on Risk Assessment. The stuff there could be of use to you.

This will be a legal requirement to satisfy some kind of health and saafety regulation.

I am turning sausages at the BBQ at my 5 year old daughters school fair, but am only allowed to do so as I have recently completed a food hygiene course.

It protects the organizers from liability.

What you need to do is find out what the legal standards are and show that your stall or whatever it is doesn't contravene the minimum standards.

I would check up with your local health and safety body - pehaps even find the right website and print out the rules, and make sure you comply with them.

Marx says somewhere (or maybe it was Lenin) that the way to control the bourgeoisie is to make them fearful of trivial dangers.

For any risk assessment... consider all possible hazards/dangers which may be apparent and work out what steps to take to minimise any possible risk to third parties and staff concerned. Take those steps and record accurately the whole of the 'Risk Assessment' you have done.......... suggest initially that you ask anyone else involved what risks they might see also... to minimise any risks even further..... a group of people are less likely to miss something
Best wishes, Mike.

I am sure that there is a specimen copy on the musicians union website. (The site won't open up for me at the moment or I would post a link)When I played with and ran my last ceilidh band we did risk assessments for venues, I also taught motocycling to disturbed kids and have done loads of risk assessments.Send me an e-mail address and I'll mail you a pro-forma.Don't bother. Just check your mails. I found your contacts on your site.
