You are expected to complete a risk assessment before starting placement. This information will be sent to you by the Placements Team. If you do not receive a risk assessment email to complete before day one of your placement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Non-completion will result in your placement being stopped.

You can either complete the free version and take a screen shot of the end page that says that you have completed it, or you can choose to pay a fee of £2 for a version that provides a completion certificate at the end.
