Risk Assessment

A risk assessment is an important step in protecting everyone who is affected by your activities, including participants, spectators, coaches, volunteers and officials. Risk Assessments will help you to focus on the risks that really matter – the ones with the potential to cause significant harm. All clubs/event organisers should undertake risk assessments.
