Club Management

Health and Safety Policy


A health and safety policy is the foundation on which to develop health and safety procedures and practices for your club.

The policy should highlight your club’s commitment towards good Health and Safety, while clarifying procedures and areas of responsibility. Alongside your sport health and safety policy, you should investigate what level of Insurance your club needs.


Your policy should include details of:

  • The Risk Assessment procedures.
  • Participants consent forms (including details of emergency contacts, medical history, special requirements and where necessary consent for photography and/or video to be taken).
  • How to respond to an incident or accident.
  • Who is their contact should a health and safety concern arise.
If you haven’t already got a sport Health and Safety Policy, use our Template to help you to get started.
