4. Risk assessment

Risk assessment cycleRisk assessment is a term used to describe the overall process where you identify hazards and risk factors that have the potential to cause harm (hazard identification). Analyze and evaluate the risk associated with that hazard (risk analysis, and risk evaluation) Accessed on 17 April 2020.

Undertaking risk assessment for planned activities is good practice and protects members. For example, if you are coordinating a BBQ then undertake a risk assessment, make members of the risks you identify and then document how you will manage the risk. This only needs to be done once and a record kept for the next BBQ. The same applies  to other activities your club may undertake.  Sample risk assessment form.

There are also some great resources in the Rotary Handbook on Risk Assurance and Insurance
