SCSWIS is piloting a revised risk assessment document

A copy of the new Risk Assessment Document, which will be used in the pilot, is available for you to look at on our website.

This risk assessment review has been going on for some time and we are now able to take its development further and carry out a pilot to evaluate how it works in practice.
