Use SafeSys ( to create new risk management documentation

Safe Work Procedures (SWP)
The objective of a SWP is to ensure that written instructions have been developed for all activities that pose a risk to the health and safety of people. SWPs should be written by a staff member(s) and/or student(s) with sound, hands on experience and knowledge of the tasks.

Use SafeSys to create your SWP (follow advice in Safe Work Procedure guidance).

Risk assessment
The objective is to ensure that all potential hazards associated with an area/task/process/equipment are identified and controlled so far as is reasonably practicable.

Use SafeSys to create your Risk Management Form (follow advice in Risk management procedure)

Tutors completing risk assessments for undergraduate lectures should refer to the templates available in the Staff - Teaching and Learning webpage.

Completion of the forms

If you are completing a new SWP or risk management form, you should check to see if there is one already available in SafeSys then clone it and update/change to make it specific to your area, otherwise start from a new blank form in SafeSys.
