I've been looking into trade stalls at some local festivals over the summer. One of them says it requires each stall to complete a full risk assessment covering all aspects of their activities at the festival. I haven't the first clue how to go about this or what those risks might be! Any ideas?

BTW - I probably won't attend this festival is it's rather costly and involves me staying onsite til gone 2am for 3 days running (!), but still interested in case required at other events.

(Em needs to get to 50 posts first).

Inform them that your products and their uses are covered/assessed by whatever and your qualifications - you may well have samples/testers.

If you'll be carrying out hand massage with EO blend or similar then you are qualified to do so and establish by question and answer whether it's appropriate - that's the only possible "activity" which comes to mind ATM.

Identify hazards (potential) what's the risk (someone tripping up etc.) is risk acceptable/avoidable (powers that be tend to forget that risks can be accepted as "acceptable")  how to eliminate risk.

Then check out moving parts to display - presumably nil.

Electrics - lights/ leads etc. if used in display.

Cloths and coverings - none flapping at corners to trip people up

Clips and clamps - none protruding

Boxes and crates - all stowed away

etc. etc.
