Thank you to Laura Shalev-Greene Head of Volunteering at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust for sharing this document.

Five steps to a risk assessment

STEP 1: Identify the hazards (What can go wrong?)

STEP 2: Decide who might be harmed and how (What can go wrong? Who is exposed to the hazard?)

STEP 3: Evaluate the risks (How bad? How often?) and decide on the precautions (Is there a need for further action?)

STEP 4: Record your findings, proposed action and identify who will lead on what action. Record the date of implementation.

STEP 5: Review your assessment and update if necessary.
