Risk Assessment for RSC events
A risk assessment form must be filled out for every RSC event organised by RSC members and staff including Local Sections, Subject Groups & Sectors, Regions and any other member groups of the RSC. Please read the Procedure for Risk Management of Events before carrying out a risk assessment.
Red Risk Assessment forms must be submitted to Pauline Meakins at least two weeks prior to the event. Please use the online form for 'red' events, i.e. events using hazardous substances.
Four examples of good practice on how to fill in a 'red' category event form are available as examples.
If you are transporting chemicals please ensure you read the booklet on Transporting Chemicals for Lecture Demonstrations and Similar Purposes.
