Did you incorporate these suggestions from last year?
It really is a frightening document. Overlong, overcomplicated, nothing
a club should concern itself with. Unprintable, with those dynamic
popups. Even if you're literally obliged to fill something like it in,
corresponding to AS/NZS 4360:199, perhaps it could be simplified in a

Mein gott, that's horrifying! Nobody should have to write something
like that up to play some games or watch a few late night videos.
Well, if you look at it on paper it's not quite as scary. Clear enough,
but still... Did someone (who?) supply that to you as boilerplate to
fill in, or did you start with a blank page and a copy of AS/NZS

It'd be nice to exercise it for a club event over the holidays.
It could like a good basis for an "event planning workshop" at Soc
Council next year. It's something people should be exposed to, but the
complete formalised paperwork is really something the Guild should
protect clubs from.
It'd probably be good to merge the annexure legends onto a footer of the
Risks Register, so it can be printed out as a self-contained document.
(in addition to and consistent with the popup header comments).
The "Responsible Org" column contents should be unified with the
section 6 stakeholder list. (don't need to copy everything into
functions list, but it's the best existing list of contributers. Who is
We could fiddle with some risk levels, but it's probably better to do
in the context of the next event to be held.
* "Inclement weather" probably isn't quite as rare as listed, but the
consequence really is insignificant.
* Appliance/Electrical fires could probably stand to be raised one
notch in likelihood to demonstrate our consideration of them.
* Lighting/power/communication failures could probably stand to be
raised a notch in likelihood - they happen, but the consequence is
* The inadequate toilet situation in Cameron Hall is in fact certain,
but of moderate and manageable consequence. We'd love better
toilets, if it weren't for the facts that it would (a) require
expensive building work and (b) probably make the building too
useful to allow poor student clubs to bum around in. ::-)
