Example Risk Assessments

This library contains example risk assessments for use as a starting point for your own assessments. They must be modified to your own work. 

Please note: It is the responsibility of the Academic Supervisor / Principle Investigator / Line Manager to ensure that the appropriate risk assessments have been completed by a competent person. The Academic Supervisor / Principle Investigator / Line Manager must authorise the final version before use. The risk assessment must be signed by all those involved to ensure that they have read and understand the risks and will abide by them.
