Health, safety and risk assessments

Important health and safety information for users of IATL's teaching spaces:


Risk assessment - teaching activities and events

When organising activities and events in IATL's teaching spaces it is extremely important that you consider the hazards involved and the degree of risk arising from those hazards. For all unusual activities we ask that you complete a risk assessment form, which can be found on the University's Health, Safety and Well-being pages. 

Risk Assessment - performances

  1. Where a professional theatre company has been employed to deliver a performance (with professionals), the responsibility for the risk assessment lies with them and a copy should be sent to IATL.spaces@warwick.ac.uk for our records. Where such a company is delivering a performance with students a further risk assessment should be drawn up in collaboration with IATL's freelance theatre technician.
  2. Where student groups are producing performances (or installations) in IATL spaces, they are required to book time with IATL's freelance technician, who will assess the risks and complete a risk assessment for IATL's records.
  3. Where staff members with no theatrical or technical training are delivering performances (or installations) in IATL spaces, they are required to book time with IATL's approved freelance technician, who will assess the risks and complete a risk assessment for IATL's records.
  4. Where technical equipment (e.g. lighting, sound, rostra, etc.) is being used in teaching practice and/or events, a full risk assessment should be carried out in advance, with input from a member of IATL staff and/or IATL's freelance technician.
