USC has a duty to provide a safe and healthy environment for those visiting USC to the extent that it is reasonably practical. To ensure USC provides a safe and healthy environment, any individual or group within USC organising an event of any nature or size, must complete a risk assessment for this event. A risk assessment is designed to:
- consider all foreseeable hazards and detail the controls used to eliminate or reduce the risk of those hazards
- detail how an emergency during the event will handled.
A checklist has been developed as a basic event risk assessment (PDF 308KB)* to ensure that controls are in place to eliminate or minimise risks at an event.
This checklist can be modified as required to suit the event being organised.
As with all risk assessments, it will have to be approved by at least one senior member of staff from the department organising the event. Refer to Risk assessments and management for more information on how to have a risk assessment approved.
If you require assistance with completing your event risk assessment, contact email@example.com.
