This template Hot Weather Risk Assessment Form can be used to manage the
hazards around your workplace during very hot periods – especially in
severe or extreme weather conditions.
We suggest that you print off a copy of the form and manually write in your
findings; the hazards you have identified and the controls you have and
will need. To help you with this process you may find it useful to read our
Guidance Notes - How to do a Risk Assessment
You will see that there is one line already completed for you in italics.
This is an example only and is to show the continuity from this Hot Weather
Risk Assessment Form through to an Action Plan using the risk assessment
reference number (RA Ref No.) and the hazard number (Hz No.) to track
This form refers to one particular assessment location. If your workplace
encompasses more than one location you should complete a separate form for
each location and accordingly each location will have a different risk
assessment reference number in the top right hand corner of the form.
Once you have hand-written your Hot Weather Risk Assessment Form you may
wish to revisit the electronic version and input your data to create a
neater more professional looking document. We have set the template fields
so as to be sufficient for most levels of information at a limit of 200
characters. If you wish to enter more than 5 hazards in any one location,
pressing “enter” when in the bottom right hand cell of the document will
automatically take you to a new page and number 6 in the hazard list. To
work out the Level of Risk (R) for each hazard on the form multiply the
Probability value (P) by the Severity value (S).
Once you have completed your Risk Assessment Form whether hand-written or
electronic, you should transfer the information in the ‘further
controls/action’ column into your Action Plan so that you can monitor who
has carried out the works and when.
