Hazard

Who might be harmed?

Is the risk adequately controlled

What further action is necessary to
control the risk?

Who is responsible for doing the work?

Look only for the hazards which you could
reasonably expect to result in significant
harm under the conditions in your work
place. Use the following examples as a
guide:

Slipping/tripping hazards

Fire (for example from flammable
materials)/welding/burning

Electricity (for example poor wiring)

Chemicals (for example battery acid)

Gas, fume, dust

Signals

Fall of shot quarry

Dogs on pegs

Local hazards- power lines, bridges

Alcohol

Direction of shooting

Public rights of way / property

Weather

Transport of guns, and shoot
personnel

Public access

Chemicals and feeds storage

Chemicals and feeds use

Use of tools

Use of ATV and other vehicles

Training

Catering and food supply

Shoot demonstrators

This is not an exhaustive list!

There is no need to list individuals by name
– just think about groups of people doing
similar work or who may be affected, for
example:

Guns

Beaters

Pickers up

Stops

Visitors

Trespassers / antis

Members of the public
Pay particular attention to:



People with special needs
Inexperienced guns, beaters etc
Visitors
Lone workers

They may be more vulnerable

Have you already taken precautions
against the risks from the hazards you
listed? For example, have you
provided:

Adequate control measures

Adequate information, instruction or
training?

Adequate systems or procedures?

Adequate protective equipment
Do the precautions:



Meet the standards set by a legal
requirement?
Represent good practice?
Comply with a recognised industry
standard?
Reduce risk as far as reasonably
practicable?

If so, then the risks are adequately
controlled, but you need to indicate the
precautions you have in place. You may
refer to procedures, manuals, company rules
etc giving this information.
List other risk assessments, if applicable,
for example COSHH, noise etc.

What more could you reasonably do for
those risks which you found were not
adequately controlled?
You will need to give priority to those risks
that affect large numbers of people and/or
could result in serious harm. Apply the
principles below when taking further action,
if possible in the following order:






Remove the risk completely
Apply a less risky option
Prevent access to the hazard (for
example by guarding)
Organise work to reduce exposure to
the hazard
Issue personal protective equipment
Provide welfare facilities (for example
washing facilities for removal of
contamination and first aid)
Include immediate short-term actions;
for example erect warning notice
and/or barriers.



List person who will do the work for
immediate actions (for example erect
barriers or notice)
List the person responsible for long
term actions (for example arrange
engineering work to remove hazard)
Record the target date for completing
the job

Ensure that the team is briefed on the
precautions.
