SLSGB launch water safety guidance
Last week (26 April), SLSGB in partnership with RoSPA and with the support of SLSGB insurer Sportscover, launched a new national guidance document on the management of event water safety.
The guidance document, a product of extensive research thanks to the support of Sportscover and Derby University was launched at the RoSPA National Water Safety Conference to an audience of more than 100 experts for further consultation.
With the recent rise in mass participation and charity events there has been much demand on the expertise of SLSGB’s clubs to provide support to these events in the form of safety cover. However, in the absence of national guidance on hazard identification, risk management, competencies and equipment, SLSGB members often found themselves working under varying standards of event management.
A draft copy of the guidance will be available shortly for you to provide your feedback to the consultation, please come back later.
