Tour risk assessment

Tour risk assessment

As All CSP activity needs to be risk assessed you may have already covered your CSPs activity, however if you are planning a Tour you will need to submit a new risk assessment to consider risks specifically associated to the venture. For example,

  • Tour attendees may not be familiar with your everyday activity.
  • the location and environment are likely to be different.
  • the activity will be happening for a longer time.
  • there are specific risks associated with travel, crime, language barriers, and accommodation.

Areas to include

Below is a starting point of risks you should mitigate against in your Tour risk assessment,

  • Health risks in the place you are visiting, including the availability of health care, vaccinations required, and rescue.
  • Security risks such as personal safety, the safety of baggage, and the possibility of unrest.
  • Risks associated with the activities being undertaken, this might be building work, mountaineering, or knitting.
  • Medical issues of the participants such as existing or chronic conditions, dental work, medications being taken, or allergies.
  • Travel risks, both the availability of travel, its reliability and likelihood of accidents.
  • Accommodation risks such as quality of accommodation and the likelihood of it not being available.
  • Reputational risks to the Union and College.

As with all risk assessment you should have a plan for emergency scenarios and circulated these to all participants. For example you should have a plan in case,

  • You need to get help in the case of a serious accident
  • Loss of valuables, money or travel documents
  • Loss of critical medical supplies or equipment
  • Weather or other natural disasters preventing travel or activity
  • Civil unrest or loss of liberty
