Protection and Health & Safety

The Constitution of RIBI (Article 5, Section D) provides that every club in the Area (Great Britain, Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) is bound in all things, not contrary to law, by the Constitution and the By-Laws of the Association and shall observe the provisions thereof.
It goes without saying that clubs are also bound by the general law of the jurisdiction within which that club is located.
RIBI does not seek to advise clubs on matters of general law, but does try to help clubs to ensure that they comply with certain specific legal frameworks which are likely to apply to the regular activities of all or most clubs.
To that end, RIBI has produced documents covering:
Equality and Diversity Policy
Health and Safety Policy Statement
Safeguarding (Children and Vulnerable Adults) Policy
and has invited clubs to adopt these policies. Adherence to these policies should ensure that no club inadvertently finds itself in breach of these areas of general law.
Compliance Confirmation
The Rotary Club of Washington Forge confirms that it has read the Insurance Guidance and adopted the following RIBI Policies:
1. Equality and Diversity
2. Health and Safety
3. Safeguarding - Children and Vulnerable Adults
