    Hi all
    Im an RQT and my colleague is an NQT and we are planning a trip to the National Railway Museum in York. We were wondering if anybody had a risk assessment that we could look at for ideas.

    Many thanks :)

    I went as a helper many moons ago and the museum sent us their own risk assessment, which would have been helpful except that it was insane! Still, might be worth asking

    Actually, your SVC (trip co-ordinator) should do this along side you. It is much better to do it with them so ask to sit down all together and go through how to plan a trip properly.

    Our visits coordinator went through all the paperwork for my first trip with me. Different schools do things differently so it's best you know your school's policy. The railway museum should have a risk assessment available for you to use to help you.

    Also, it's always worth doing a pre-visit to locate things like toilets, education rooms if they're available, possible choke-points and just generally orientate yourself before having to guide kids around. If you arrange this directly, it's usually free and staff members often make themselves available for questions.

    Most museums have a risk assessment which they provide for schools. I'll be surprised if the NRM doesn't have one.

    It doesn't.
