Updated Risk Management of Events protocol now live

Find out more about how to run your event safely.

Key points of this protocol are:

  • Events now need to be categorised as routine, minor or significant and the relevant procedure followed for each category
  • The protocol follows a risk-based approach, with a light touch approach for routine and minor events, and more detail needed for significant events
  • There is a simplified process to gain prior agreement for events from University departments
  • For minor events, a new health and safety planning checklist helps people to think through any risks, so the event can be approved
  • For significant events, a risk assessment need to be produced, signed off and approved.

Download the full protocol and its associated guidance documents from the Wellbeing, Safety and Health website.
