Excellent choice of example [notwithstanding that some of our students
take it as a point of honor to deliberately not look?].

I think that while the term 3risk assessment2 has lots of meaning and
connotations for those of us who see it every day, I am not at all so sure
that most students will understand what we intend. Thus I would recommend
expanding the 3RAMP2 section substantially.

Lastly?now that you have gotten them to stop and think, they need guidance
re where to go for help in doing a good risk assessment. As others have
said, that final fleeting reference [which I totally missed on first
viewing] needs enhancement. Brevity is commendable, but if this is
directed at students, I think they need more help re where to go.

Thanks very much for doing this!
