riskNET: Risk assessment

Guidance for people writing and approving risk assessments using riskNET.

riskNET provides an online approval and authorisation process for risk assessments as well as a central database storage of completed risk assessments with search function.

To maintain performance and ensure that the risk assessment database is up-to-date, we conduct a monthly scheduled data cleansing programme.

  • Risk assessments in the 'Planning' stage for three months or longer with no activities will be removed
  • Risk assessments in the 'Planning' stage for six months or longer will be removed

If your risk assessment has been removed because it fell into one of the above criteria, but it is still required, please email risknet.help@ucl.ac.uk for assistance.

  2. Use Google Chrome as your browser and close down the browser when you have finished entering data (this logs you out of the system). 
  3. Do not have multiple browser sessions open at the same time. You can only have one session at a time
