When your proposed club event is referred to Risk Management a Risk Assessment will need to be completed. This will assist in determining if your club event will be approved and if the purchase of Special Event insurance is required. Refer to the Risk Assessment webpage for additional information, including Typical Characteristics of Medium to High Risk Events. The following are the Risk Assessment Tools/forms…
- Risk Assessment Instructions (PDF)
- Risk Assessment Worksheet (PDF)
- Risk Identification and Evaluation Procedure (Supplement to the Risk Assessment Worksheet) (PDF)
- A completed and signed Release of Liability Form will be required for events and is available on the University Risk Management website.
