Need help writing your club risk assessments?

The South West Region have put together this handy guide to help clubs when conducting risk assessments. 

In the document you will find advice and guidance along with examples, templates and frequently asked questions. 

A risk assessment is an examination of the possible risks and hazards that could occur and cause harm. Once potential dangers have been identified it is essential to put measures in place to minimise the risk of them happening, and plan what to do if any of them should occur.

Sports organisations have a duty of care to their paid staff, volunteers and athletes. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 also places a duty on employers to assess rick to those who may be affected by their activities which includes staff and volunteers.
