Policies, Procedures & Guidance

Risk Assessment

Health and safety risk assessment is the proper consideration of all work-related hazards persons are exposed to, and determining means to avoid these hazards, or reduce their likelihood/severity.

Assessing Health and Safety risks

Robert Gordon University has a duty to make suitable and sufficient assessments of the risks to which employees may be exposed whilst at work. The University's duty extends to assessing the risks to persons not in its employment but affected by its undertakings, for example, students or visitors. In order to support these requirements, procedures and templates have been provided to aid the development of risk assessments.

Contact the Governance and Compliance Department if you need additional support:

The fire safety of buildings is assessed by the Fire Safety Adviser using the PAS79 template. Process fire risks such as a Chemistry Experiment or Engineering Project will require an additional specific risk assessment by the School using a Hazardous / Dangerous Substances Assessment template.
