Health and Safety


Everyone has a right to a healthy and safe working environment including those who work and participate in sport and recreation.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 is an opportunity for your sports organisation or club to review your health and safety practices and behaviours and revise how you manage critical risks that could cause illness, injury or even death.  

We have compiled some useful resources to assist you with your health and safety planning.
