Generic Risk Assessment


Type of meeting: - Public Lecture Meeting


Room Booking Requirements:

Nothing special - but check with hosts about disability access


ALL PEOPLE TAKE PART AT THEIR OWN RISK - we do have liability insurance but NO accident insurance!






Safety measures

Electric hazards on equipment used


It is assumed that the hosts have carried out the necessary PAT tests. Do not use if you notice the test is out of date or if there is any obvious damage to the equipment or wiring. Warn people if you find any trailing cables that could be a trip hazard.

Access problems


Check with hosts for any problems with access. Ask some members to volunteer to act as ushers to direct the public to the correct room.



The Chair must tell people present about the fire exits and evacuation procedure at the start of the meeting.
