Programme workers 

It is good practice for all workers, particularly those working directly with young people, to receive a structured briefing at the beginning of any programme and/or after any significant change. This briefing should include a summary of the risk assessment, identifying key hazards and any key control measures that apply to the forthcoming activity. Workers should be given the opportunity to ask questions on the risk assessment and their role in the application of control measures.   

Young people 

It is important that young people are also provided with a structured briefing at the beginning of any programme and after any significant change.  This briefing should include a summary of the risk assessment, identifying key hazards and any key control measures that apply to the forthcoming activity. Young people should be given the opportunity to ask questions to aid understanding.  

A structured daily or activity-specific briefing may include the following example information and this should be delivered verbally in an appropriate manner for the group or individuals to enable and aid understanding.
