Hi there,

Does anyone have a risk assessment for a university summer school that they would be willing to share?

Thanks in advance.

You don't give enough information. The risk assessment depends on:

  • The ages of the participants
  • Their general health/mobility/special needs or vulnerabilities
  • What they are going to do (e.g. are they going to do laboratory work?)
  • The level of education/experience prior to coming to the summer school
  • The degree of supervision
  • Whether it is residential or not.

(not an exhaustive list)

Also what courses are they doing: literary workshops or laboratory (teaching labs or self-directed projects) work or fieldwork?
