Field Trips – Risk Assessment

By virture of the fact of being a society it is necessary to submit a risk assessment to RGU:Union before going off on any adventures, consequently we did a bit of surfing on the Internet to find some examples. We managed to find quite a bit of info about travelling by car / minibus, hillwalking and even a few research articles and a PhD thesis.
