The Donkey Sanctuary has a legal responsibility under The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to risk assess the return to the workplace during the Covid-19 period.

We have set up a risk and mitigation group to identify risks and put control measures in place to ensure the highest levels of protection for our staff as they come back to work on site.

As required by Government, we are publishing a selection of representative assessment for public view.

General Risk Assessments highlight commonly identified risks, hazards and control measures associated with general workplace activities or events. They are tailored and specific to the individual circumstances presented by the activity or participants in question.

Our Risk Assessments are compiled with contributions from as many people concerned as practicable, and regularly reviewed as necessary.


The following Risk Assessment samples cover the breadth of activity at The Donkey Sanctuary:
