Risk Assessment

The Organiser must produce a risk assessment prior to the event. You should discuss it with the planner, mapper and controller when preparing it.

The Risk Assessment template can be obtained from the British Orienteering website at

The following Risk Assessment from a previous major TVOC event may be helpful when completing this form. However it is essential that the Organiser (and other officials) thinks carefully about the specific risks applying to their event. Bradenham 2012 risk assessment

This document may also be helpful in thinking about event safety: LVO-Event-Safety-Steps-reduced.doc

The organiser should also have a couple of copies of British Orienteering's Accident Report Form with him on the day of the event. These can be printed off the British Orienteering website at
