Keeping young people safe is our primary aim in Scouting. Having fun, doing adventurous and new things comes a close second. This means we must assess the safety of every activity we do with or young people. We do this through risk assessments.
Update to Activity Rules from September 2020:
The main change proposed in this area is that all risk assessments are documented, but in a way that is not laborious. It should become part of your routine programme planning or just require small tweaks to be made to existing risk assessments for those activities done on a regular basis at section meetings.

MK Scouts have extended the use of their online Risk Assessment Generator.
This uses a simple online form to produce an easy to read Risk Assessment document! Also contains access to shared templates.
