The Experiment Risk Assessment (ERA) is a new process for assessing experiment and sample safety at ISIS.

An online Experiment Risk Assessment (ERA) is required to be completed by the experiment team for each experiment instead of the COSHH form used previously. The ERA form includes the existing COSHH information, and also covers wider aspects of an experiment. By providing information about the various aspects of an experiment, whether it's the people involved, the samples, work in our Prep Labs, equipment needed, or the physical conditions required, ISIS staff will be better equipped to provide you with the facility you need for successful beamtime including health and safety 'paperwork'.

If you receive a request to complete an ERA, please use the online system to do this. Once you have submitted the form, it will be sent to your local contact for review and then to the ISIS experiment operations team. 

If you require any help in completing the form, please contact your local contact or our Sample Safety Team on isissamplesafety@​
