the Students’ Union has a duty to provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions and equipment for all its students.

as a club/society of the Students’ Union you also have a duty to provide the same for your members.

duty of care requires you to consider the consequences of your actions and omissions and to ensure that these do not lead to injury to any other person.

you are not expected to guarantee safety, just act reasonably and responsibly.

risk assessments
the purpose of a risk assessment is to help determine what measures need to be taken in order to make sure an activity is done safely

Ensure all relevant risks or hazards are addressed
Ensure that all members of the group are considered
Identify people who might be particularly at risk

e.g. students with disabilities or inexperienced volunteers
a risk assessment must be done for every activity/event/trip

Changing your constitution
