Added Norex Model Show to diary

Template risk assessement

Because I seem to be getting a lot of emails from people worried about the risk assessments I have decided to issue a generic form which can be edited to suit.

As it stands it covers all the basics and just needs a Branch or SIG name adding along with a date.

If your Branch or SIG has any extra risks that you feel should be mentioned then they can be added at the end of the form.

Please note it is a Branch or SIG responsibility to perform a proper risk assessment; simply “tick boxing” the template form is not sufficient.

The form is on the Scale ModelWorld Forms page or can be downloaded directly from here

Deadline for SMW Risk Assessments

The deadline for risk assessments to be with the UK Liaison Officer is the 30th June.

Can all Branch and SIG Leaders please make sure that you have one on file before that date?

The listing on the website is up to date and checked daily, so if you have sent a copy in and it has not been entered please contact me as it may have not arrived.

Remember that we now have a new UKLO and that I am quite happy to accept risk assessments by email (contact details here)

John White, UK Liaison Officer
