GL171 - Using Model Risk Assessments in D&T

Design and Technology teachers and technicians generally continually assess the hazards and risks presented by the work they and their pupils are doing, and the circumstances they are doing it in.

However, the recording of any adjustments to the advice in model risk assessments is often less well carried out.

This new guide explains how this legal requirement is easy and manageable in schools.

There is also a Excel Spreadsheet (E171) which can be used as a planning and Risk Assessment recording tool.
