Risk assessment is the cornerstone of good health & safety management, and in achieving the overall aim of reducing injures. To keep the approach clear and simple we provide templates to give an indication of the types of hazards that could be encountered and actions that could be taken, however it is extremely important that these templates are amended and reviewed to ensure the hazards that may cause injury are included, or any other hazards not covered are added.

Safety Campaign - April 2021

Risk Assessments and Guidance

Following a full review over the winter months, The Pony Club is launching new risk assessment documentation and supportive guidance. These materials are aligned with legal requirements and industry standards but enable a more streamlined approach to how we complete risk assessments for activities.

The templates are designed as a starting base and should be adapted specifically to events and venues. To support, we have also created step-by-step guidance.

See below for the new documentation.

Risk Assessment Training

The Pony Club is also launching a new course to provide essential training around risk assessments. Through this training, you will gain an understanding about:

  • the purpose of risk assessments, i.e. to prevent injuries,
  • how people might get injured, and,
  • what you can do to avoid it happening.

The training will be open to all Branches, Centres and Areas to attend with places costing £10.
