A risk assessment for trips and outings is a comprehensive document, which is written as per specific standards to be adhered to all times. A school trip risk assessment is managed by the Head Teacher or the Group Leader. In case someone suffers from an immediate health concern, or needs to be helped in an emergency situation, risk assessment is executed and conducted.
Considerations for School Trip Risk Assessment
- What risks might be faced by the group?
- Who can the risks potentially affect?
- What kind of safety measures are being taken to reduce risks?
- Can the Group Leader conduct and implement risk assessment?
- How will an emergency situation be handled?
When a large group is involved on school tours, all supervisors and teachers should be given a copy of the school trip risk assessment document. People should be assigned and given the responsibility to implement risk assessment, if required. It’s also important to constantly monitor risks.
If you consult a reputed tour operator, the Group Leader will be able to avoid certain incidents. The Group Leader is also well-versed with execution of risk assessment, and ensures that everything is properly handled.
It’s extremely important to ensure that transport arrangements comply with risk assessment. If you’re planning a trip to an unknown territory, it’s always good to plan an exploratory visit, if possible, before the actual trip. Most importantly, you need to carry a first-aid kit and medicines for emergency situations.
Hiring an experienced tour operator allows you to avoid all these hassles, and ensures that the trip goes fine.
