    RA template for what?

    Ring-a-ring-a-roses? Or taking a sailing boat out to sea for a weekend cruise?

    For each activity you have the name of the activity, you list the risks in one column, the consequences in the next, what you will do to mitigate the risk, and then the expected outcome. You should have reduced the risk - if not eliminated it.

    You could use this... http://www.hse.gov.uk/risk/risk-asse...y-template.doc

    Thanks so much for your kinds words of support to someone trying to learn and develop. I am sorry I am not blessed with all of the knowledge you clearly have.

    Blank RA templates are common place. You fill in the blanks. They have columns and points to remind you. Your sarcastic comment (i wont call it a reply) shows that maybe this is not the place to come for help and support. I simply wanted to know if there was a generic RA form used by scouts...

    I'll let you google it, call it ongoing training

    Ian,

    Actually, I banged my head before I answered.... for the same reasons. I also picked the HSE template because if you wish to take that route, then you should have uniformity and operate to the best practice in recording. Joe Blogg's version may be good, but the HSE version is the one that will stand up in court as best practice.

    I TRUST this was the sort of template you meant, not simply a blag of someone elses risk assessment - which you should NEVER use as your own without fully validating it first.

    As a part of your ongoing profesional development, could I suggest that you save a lot of head banging by reading the thread that was last added to 10 minutes before your question , the one titled " Risk Assements" .


    It would have saved you some time, and you would have reached the same place.


    Now back, to await someone asking a question on "Explorers District or Group?" or " Do I need to wear a uniform for ...?" or anyone one of the hundreds of questions that could be answered by the questioner using their time rather than others times X, pass me the helmet please the paddding is a bit thin on this wall

    We discussed this very factsheet oh, back in August IIRC. At the time, it implied that every risk assessment should be written down. A point that we debated exhaustively. Well, maybe I'm going daft(er), maybe this is a different factsheet, but I cannot find that reference to having it all written down any more...

    Come now Marc, we have been around the block a few times, the newbies always appreciate a little help, even if we have gone through it a thousand times before ;-) Now, on nthat Uniform question, someone told me where to put the bropom, but I can't find where it fits on the trousers...

    Does "RTFM?" count?

    The recording of the assessment should be in a format which is easily read. Long, wordy risk assessments can be as dangerous as no risk assessment. If they cannot be communicated, they are worthless.
    Taken from the factsheet! The implication is still clearly there that all risk assessment should be written down. Sadly as I have given up fag smoking I no longer have my template available and my tobacco pouch does not have any white space.
