Club Induction Questionnaire

This short tutorial is to be used as a guide on how to assess and manage potential hazards and areas of risk that may be an exposure for serious injuries and property damage in and around your club.

This tutorial is designed to highlight the importance of being ‘aware’ at all times that potential dangers exist and that by having a ‘pro-active’ approach and culture throughout your club will assist in the prevention of the exposures that Football clubs face.

It is strongly recommended that this resource is highlighted, as often as possible, and made available to all past and present club Directors, staff, participants and volunteers.

On completion of this tutorial, a ‘Certificate of Accreditation’ will be provided immediately for persons who participate in the short tutorial.

Have you downloaded our Risk Management App?

The app is available to Affiliated Clubs within the FFA National Insurance programme.

This app includes risk management resources that clubs can complete and store without the burden of having to make paperwork available for ground managers or storing completed documents. The app provides a guide to some of the areas where risks are present that can then be identified and actions proposed to mitigate the impacts of potential incidents or injuries.
