riskNET: Responsible Persons Register

Guidance for people using the Responsible Persons Registers as well guidance for Register Co-ordinators who manage a register and Heads of Department who confirm a register.

The Responsible Persons' Register ("RPR") is a central system for recording who has been given specific safety responsibilities (e.g. Fire Evacuation Marshals, First Aiders etc) within a department. Departments are required to keep the RPR up to date as part of their management arrangements and the Head of Department is required to 'confirm' the RPR annually. The Register Co-ordinator is the person who is responsible for editing and updating the register.

Responsibilities and system permissions 

Please note that assigning Departmental Safety Officers, Incident Co-ordinators, Register Co-ordinators, DSE Assessment Co-ordinators and Heads of Department in the register doesn’t grant system permissions and email alerts – these are set in a separate area of riskNET.  Contact risknet.help@ucl.ac.uk to have these added or removed.
