Row Safe, Stay Safe Content

Over the coming months the Safety Advisory Committee aim to build up content that can be used by clubs as reference material and advice on how to identify hazard, assess the risks, and then how to produce process and procedures to manage those risks. Content will include safety tips and facts for all aspects of rowing, Para, Coastal, Offshore, and flat water(river). Subject matter will include up to date international best practice as well as legislative requirements for clubs North and South of the border.

It is also envisaged that reader input and questions will be address in a “Reader Questions, Answered” segment each month. The “Row Safe, Stay Safe”, bulletin will be available on the Rowing Ireland website and will be emailed directly to club Captains, Secretaries, and safety Advisors.
