Risk register templates

Use the appropriate risk register template to document identified risks and existing risk management strategies (controls) and new risk management strategies (treatments).

All schools must assess their own school specific risks and fill in the register according to their own specific environment. The templates provide example risks with example of existing and new risk management strategies (controls and treatments) however these need to be reviewed or updated to suit your specific context.
