Ok my association are moving apiary sites but we have now been asked for a risk assessment. Never done one before so does someone have one i can look at. Also does BDI cover third party liability?

BDI does not cover third party - it covers some losses from disease. The BBKA insurance covers public liability and product liability.

We are in the process of getting risk assessment documentation for our apiary meetings. Not done one for a move though.

I had to do a risk assessment for a display of renewable energy technologies at a festival, and found the most difficult part was keeping a straight face when composing it............

Sorry Veg- just touched a nerve...It has caused such unnecessary work in many businesses. People come up with crass reasons why things cannot be done--- just in case they get sued by a scheming scumbag. Yes, health and safety does have its place - and is ruled by COMMON SENSE Good luck with your assessment.
