As an RFU affiliated club, it is important that you keep the whole of the club as safe as possible and this applies as much off the pitch as well as on it.
Your club will be visited by hundreds, if not thousands, of people each year and you have a duty to ensure that your premises, including your clubhouse, car park and grounds, are safe not going to cause them to be injured.
To help clubs to assess the risks within your premises we have worked with the RFU and your insurers to create this online risk assessment tool.
Here you will find a number of simple, easy to manage, risk assessments, each designed to help you through the process with guidance on what risks you need to consider and how you can best manage them.
As you work through each appropriate assessment your progress will be recorded and, once completed, the system will save a copy of your assessment for future reference. If you identify steps that you need to take in future, these will be saved in an action plan.
Completing the risk assessments will help you to keep your premises safe and by saving your efforts, the system automatically creates the audit trail you need to prove the work you are doing to manage you risks.
To log-in, please CLICK HERE. You will be able to click on your club's name if you start to type it in the box.
If you have any queries regarding the system at all or whilst you’re working through your risk assessments, please contact Howden.
