Question 24 - Risk Benefit Assessments

What do my risk assessments need to include?

Share with us 3 examples of risk-benefit assessments relating to activities undertaken in your Forest School sessions. 

These should have a clear section that sets out the perceived benefits of undertaking the activity and go on to list the associated hazards and risks.  

Please ensure that the risk assessment follows guidance set out in the Health and Safety Executive’s 5 steps to Risk assessment guidance 

At least 2 of the risk-benefit assessments you share need to relate to ‘higher risk’ activities such as tool use, fire, climbing or foraging for example.
