Note: the following risk assessment templates contain a non-exhaustive list of all the hazards and risks present in your school. It may therefore be necessary to use the blank template No. 74 provided at the back of Part C for those hazards not specifically dealt with. These templates should form a good foundation for identifying hazards, assessing risks, and implementing control measures. However, you must also pay close attention to your own school environment and identify and write down other hazards that may be present, and control measures that you have in place or are required to be implemented. It is recommended that every year each teacher carries out a risk assessment of their own classroom taking into account the age and other relevant characteristics of the students using that room during that year.
See page 56-68 of the Guidelines for information on how the risk assessment templates work, including a sample template on page 60-61. Suggested templates that can be completed for each subject area or work activity can be found on page 64-67.
