Risk assessments for exercise laboratory procedures

All procedures used with human participants within the exercise laboratories in Sport and Health Sciences should be assessed for risk.

For many of these procedures we have standard risk assessments. These can be accessed by anyone with a University of Exeter single sign-on via the SHS Health and Safety Sharepoint site.

If your proposed procedure is not covered by a pre-existing assessment then please complete a new General risk assessment form. The form and guidance to completing it can be found on the Health and safety website.

  • PGR students should complete this in consultation with their supervisor.
  • The student should be named as the "Assessor" on the form and the supervisor should be entered as “Manager” at the end of the form.
  • The supervisor should then upload the assessment to the Sport and Health Sciences H&S Sharepoint site, where it will be allocated a reference number.

Guidance for students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses on the procedure for completing a new assessment can be found within the dissertation module pages on ELE.
