Risk Assessments

A Quantock Orienteers guide

Please read this alongside our policy documents, in particular the Safety Policy and Covid Safe Operating Procedures.

According to British Orienteering rules, every orienteering event or activity must have a written risk assessment.

It is the Planner and Organiser's duty to prepare the risk assessment. Each may have a different focus, with the Planner focusing on the courses and the Organiser focusing on marshalling, for instance.
The Controller must check and sign the risk assessment. So if the Controller is not happy with the arrangements then changes have to be made before the risk assessment can be signed off.

For activities without a formal controller (eg. JOG) the Planner and Organiser must sign.
