just curious as to what risk assessments you NEED to do, what you do anyway and what kind of things you put in them, what kind of format do you do? I am struggling with this

at the mo I am doing a daily one but I was looking at it today and it just seemed like I had written the same thing everyday and not actually risk assessed just made sure i had kind of cleaned up a bit! I wanted something a little more detailed!! anyone got anything i can get some ideas from or know any websites that have some on?! ta x x

Go round every room and think about the hazard - and how you tackle it to make it safe... from hangers over doors to covers on sockets, to keeping babies away from dangling curtains to securing bookcases to stop them toppling...

This is a good article -

The bromley website has risk assessments free


There are daily checklists and examples of how to do risk assessments under eyfs plus blank sheets you can download and adapt/fill in yourself

Well worth a look

You're welcome... like Miffy says there is also some excellent stuff on Bromley here -


I'm sure there are some sample forms and ideas for completing them on Silkysteps as well but I am being dim this morning and can't find them! :D

Another question on my Self Assessment - "Have you carried out a risk assessment for children who become ill while in your care, or who have a contageous disease, including your own family?"

NOOOOOOOO! I have a sickness policy in place - looks like that's not enough for the Care Commission now either
