Risk Management Resources

Gow-Gates and the ARU have developed documentation tailored to Rugby Bodies to assist in providing a safe environment for all participants. We encourage you to download and use all this documentation to promote a safe environment at your club.

Annual Safety Audit (pdf)

The annual safety audit is a risk management tool that should be completed prior to the start of each season, allowing enough time for any changes to be made and risks rectified before the season gets underway. This is designed to highlight some of the risks that can exist on a larger scale and to promote club committees to be pro-active in preventing injuries.

Match Day Inspection (pdf)

The match day inspection checklist is a risk management tool that should be completed at the start of each day at each venue. It is designed with amateur sports volunteers in mind to assist you to identify risks present on the day and to take steps to prevent injuries to players and others at the venue, which could result in Public Liability claims. This inspection does not identify all risks. Gow-Gates and ARU suggest you use your own experience ad initiative to identify additional risks that may be present.

Rugby Risk Management Poster (pdf)

This poster has been designed to highlight the presence of “Rugby Risk Management” to all clubs. The poster also has areas to note the phone numbers of important emergency contacts so they are clearly identifiable to all concerned.

Incident Report Form (pdf)

This form is designed to flag to your insurers any possible incident which may lead to a claim under the Public Liability and Professional Indemnity policies that the club holds. Early notification to insurers is essential and this form is designed to assist your club in collecting the relevant incident information.

Incidents which may necessitate the completion of this form include injuries not sustained in a match (i.e. to spectators), property damage and any incident which leads to an allegation of negligence or impropriety on behalf of the club or its members.
