Health & Safety


Clubs are reminded that they should re-visit their Club Health & Safety Policy on an annual basis.  In the event of a Health & Safety issue arising it may be more difficult to receive support from our insurers if the Club has not adopted the Policy and appropriate risk assessments have not been undertaken.    


Advice from the District Health and Safety Officer is available by contacting Brian Boyd.


Prior to an event, organisers must appoint one person to carry out a Risk Assessment, in a timely manner in order for it to be reviewed and signed off. The document shall be agreed, approved and recorded by Club Council in order to demonstrate traceability

A Person appointed must seek out expertise where so required if in any doubt about any matter. 

A prior visit to the event site needs to be conducted to identify potential hazards that may be encountered at that event. 

The assessment will be carried out and recorded in writing with copies to all involved in running event. 
Assessments should be concise, address real issues and should not centre on minor issues.
Assessments should categorise risks based on chances of it occurring, and degree of impact.
Review after the event with those involved, and retain record with any corrections for next event.
