The University has strict guidelines on what we need to inform the University of when working on projects. This is so that high levels of practice are maintained, ensuring public confidence in the University, as well as the safeguarding of all involved participants.
What this translates as for my project is filling in both, a stage one, and stage two risk checklist and application form. This is due to the fact that I will be interacting with members of the general public and operating in various situations where risks may be present.
By filling out these forms, I have been made to consider my project in greater detail than I otherwise would have. This can only help in further preparing me for the tasks I have coming up later in the project.
