4.3g Risk management - what to record and how
Employers are required by law to carry out risk assessments and, where five or more people are employed, record any significant findings. In the context of outdoor learning and off–site visits, this means recording (as simply as possible) what you plan to do, as a result of identifying risks and making a judgement about the balance of benefits and risks.
A risk assessment record should not be complicated or lengthy; it could be thought of as the minutes of a staff meeting involving the visit leader, where any significant issues, and how to manage them, were discussed and recorded.
