Health and safety guidance for schools and group leaders

This guidance is designed to assist teachers and group leaders in completing their own risk assessment during a familiarisation visit to Leeds Museums & Galleries venues before a group visit.

Leeds Museums & Galleries are a group of nine historic sites, with particular associated hazards. We have minimised the risks to visitors, while taking care to have as little impact as possible on the integrity of each building and collection. Special workshops or events may have specifically identified hazards or risks. If you are involved in such an event, please speak to a member of the Learning and Access Team to discuss requirements of your group. Our full workshop risk assessments are available to view at our individual sites.
