As with all / any risk assessment documentation, or indeed any H&S documentation, don't just blinded purchase / download and adopt as it is because, in reality, at that stage it's unlikely to meet the "suitable and sufficient" test.


I've just downloaded their stuff and, in general, it appears to cover the main points of the RA process but does need to be read in conjunction with the 'instruction manual' (also available to download) to use it to best effect. Not sure about some of the risk ranking / rating outcomes tbh but that's always a subjective element and open to debate ("not tonight please" :D ) and appears to assume climbing for all tree surgery works....mmmmm.


Similarly the method statement is okay but does miss out welfare arrangements, often an 'eye-brow' raiser but very relevant to construction (of which the document has a strong flavor.)


Not surprisingly, if you're keen to adopt industry specific / industry produced stuff then I know an organization who can help :thumbup:

Hi Paul. 


I've just signed up to the AA (super basic junior level admittedly!) 


I can't seem to find the download section for risk assessment templates etc. Am I being daft or missing something?
