Risk Assessment Template

This document is a qualitative health and safety risk assessment based on the Risk Assessment Template.

You will be filling this in with a Subject Matter Expert (SME) and a Risk Assessment Expert, these may be the same person or two people. The table on the right can be used to evaluate each Hazard, we'd like everything to be low (L), but it's fine to have a Medium (M) in there from time to time if nothing sensible can be done to reduce the risk further, risk assessments are not meant to stop you doing a thing. But please, a High (H) means you really shouldn't do it in the space.
