Safety Officer training

One of the key responsibilities of your club Committee is to ensure that your members, and those who you encounter, are safe during your club activities. 

If your club manages safety effectively then it should not be onerous, and your club will be better for it. 

The Sports Service has a range of support and oversight functions in place to support with these responsibilities.
