To help you manage the ponds in your area, we have put together a free risk assessment template for you to use when assessing the potential risks.
Factors to consider include the design of the pond to show deeper areas to avoid potential drowning risks, as well as eliminating slip/trip hazards. It also refers to hygiene risks such as hand washing, covering up wounds and not eating in the pond area.

Whilst we realise some of the suggested measures may not be practical for your council, the key is that you assess the risk particular to your pond area and take appropriate steps to manage that risk. We have provided some examples of measures that can be taken but these may not be appropriate or achievable for all.
If you would like an editable version of the above risk assessment documents, please contact us.
