Risk Assessment Overview
Risk assessments for Econet activities are assembled from a series of 'base' documents which can be viewed below. These documents are broadly based on
The Conservation Volunteers generic risk assessments.
The base documents fall into one of three categories:
- Activity specific assessments which apply to specific activities either an event or a task, e.g. 'Hedgelaying' or 'Event - Guided Walk'.
- Site specific assessments which apply to all activities at a particular site, e.g. 'Public Open Space' applies to all sites where there is
unrestricted public access and relates to issues such as dog fouling and sharps.
- Assessments which can apply to either an activity or a site, e.g. 'Roadside working' may apply to all activities at some sites but could apply to activities
at other sites depending on the location of the activity.
In addition there is a 'General Conservation Activities' assessment which applies to all tasks.
