We're changing

We have created a new public body, Historic Environment Scotland. While we work on shaping our future we can reassure you that all services and products will continue as normal. Please follow our progress and find out more about our new organisation.

Hazard Planning Sheets

Hazard planning sheets are available for all 75 of our staffed sites and are intended as a preparatory tool and do not replace a teacher’s own risk assessment.

Hazard sheets

Being a requirement of most education authorities, it is the responsibility of the teacher and group leaders to complete a risk assessment prior to any site visit.

Our Hazard Information Sheets break down potential hazards into pedestrian access to site, external hazards and internal hazards.
