Safety in Sport
The aims is to encourage as many people as possible to participate in sporting activities and to lead the best athletes to sporting excellence. These aims, however, must be achieved within a safe and healthy environment. Although no activity can be made completely risk free, high levels of injury to participants, spectators and the public are not and should not be considered to be an inevitable consequence of sport. In this context, each sport’s National Governing Body and their associated clubs and societies are legally responsible for ensuring that procedures are developed that will eliminate or minimise the impact of intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors on athletes, spectators and the public during all forms of sporting activity.
We look and train you on your legal responsibilities and the Safety of participants and all other people that may be affected by your activities.
