Generic risk assessments - visits and activities

These are generic risk assessments to assist with the planning and management of visits and activities. They identify the common hazards and risks associated with these activities and the primary means by which the risks are controlled.

Organisations are encouraged to develop their own generic standards or adopt or amend those provided here. This will help develop consistent standards and reduce planning time for event organisers.
