Safety Information - Risk Assessments
Risk Assessments (RA) and Safe Work Procedures (SWP) must be established for all hazardous tasks.
The University of Sydney website outlines the five WHS risk management steps that all members of the University should follow. Writing a RA is part of this process requires identification of hazards and their associated risks and solutions that will reduce the risk.
The Risk Assessment Template below should be used for all new RA. If you find a RA in the list below which deals with your risk you may re-use it if:
1. You have checked it thoroughly to ensure that the content is relevant and up to date
2. The layout is the same as in the Risk Assessment Template.
If not, you must transfer the information into the template to create an up to date document. When you update an old RA or create a new one, email the new document to Matthew Day or Michael Joseph so that they can upload it to this intranet page.
