Risk Assessments are a fundamental part of managing health and safety in the workplace, and it is hoped the following University Policy Standard and Information Sheets will explain CNS responsibilities with regards to risk assessments and provide practical guidance on how to undertake a risk assessment.

Risk Assessments are also not as difficult or as arduous as people think. They are simply a careful examination of what in the workplace could cause harm, who it could harm eg. staff, students, neighbours, emergency services, the environment so we can then decide if enough is being done to control the risk or if we need to do more.
