Risk assessment

Postby gaita » Mon Aug 18, 2014 6:32 pm

Does anyone have any good examples of Risk Assessments for an outdoor acoustic music performance by three performers, on the flat ground, not on a stage? They have rejected 'No descernable risks'.

Thanks

you probably need to be more specific and break things down.

E.g. Trips and slips: music stands perhaps, state no cables or electricity (assuming that's true).
Will people be dancing to you? In which case how do you stop them from running into you, falling over you.
If there is 'no risk' from something specific, state that.
That sort of thing.

Problem with 'no discernible risks' is that your client has no evidence that you've thought of the risks at all.

Hope some of that helps.

have you logged the risk of performers tripping over something/slipping whilst concentrating on their music? Might be highly unlikely, but its a possible risk that you could log then indicate that you are all playing with your eyes open!

ask them for their fire safety log book, PAT testing schedules, fire extinguisher service records,


the list is endless if you want.


everyday i can be an insignificant but unavoidable nuisance is a day well spent.

The HSE has an excellent website with loads of information. Here's the section on risk assessments and giving examples.

Hope it helps.
