Sample Risk Assessments

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

On this page logged-in users can download a guide to assessing and managing risk, along with sample risk assessments which show the kind of approach the Schools Health & Safety Team expects a school in Waltham Forest to take.

You should use them as a guide to think about:

  • some of the hazards in your school
  • the steps you need to take to control the risks.

Do not just copy them and put your school's name to it as that would not satisfy the law - and would not protect your staff. Every school is different - you need to think about the hazards and controls your school needs.

Even where the hazards are the same, the control measures you adopt may have to be different from those in the examples to meet the particular conditions in your school.
