Our property risk management system

Our risk management system meets legal minimum standards to keep you, your members and visitors safe. The system also helps protect the MS Society financially - and you from personal liability.

Risk assessments

The purpose of risk assessment is to:

  • show all the foreseeable risks that could be found in a particular situation
  • determine the level of risk
  • develop control measures that can be put in place to avoid these risks

Your group must carry out risk assessments if you have property that is owned by the MS Society, or where the lease or rental agreement indicates you have upkeep and maintenance responsibilities.

The MS Society property risk assessment outlines the specific hazards and controls the MS Society needs in order to satisfy the law and protect our volunteers, employees and service users
