    Risk Assessment for Pheasant Shoot

    Hi All

    Don't know if this has been done to death or not

    Looking at starting a Risk Assessment for a small Pheasant Syndicate.

    I have got the blanks off the BASC Website, has anyone done one and if so any advice

    Hi James,
    Never used the Basc one or even done one for shooting, I do however write hundreds in my job.
    Do you really need to do them? they are a lot of work. Remember you need to do them for each activity on the shoot. The form i use for work is more like a graph that plots the Hazard (something with potential to cause harm) and the posible severity. this gives you a score. anything over a certain number requires further controls to reduce the risk. It would be nice if there was an example of a completed one on the BASC site to follow. The idea is to prove you have exersised due diligance. now the corporate manslaughter laws have changed this is going to get more and more important to shoot owners.

    Qwik answer YES! have an incident and see what happens,who ever runs the syndicate ends up liable,insurance may not be valid etc,not worth the risk.

    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

    If you visit the document section of the NGO website you will find a generic risk assesment form that you can print and use

    Dont go down the route the syndicate I was in did with its risk assessment. Just about every activity from roost shooting pigeons to digging a hole in a spud field to ambush pinkies (gawd its tempting to write pikies there! ) was deemed an unacceptable risk that required the presence of at least one other person or a written pre activity safety assessment. The document became a subject of derision and were completely ignored and being unworkable.
    Keep them generic and depend on past proof of safe practice as indicators of adequate control procedures being in place.
