Safety & Risk Management

"Australian Sailing recognises that there are inherent risks associated with conducting sailing events, races and activities (including training) at clubs and centres.” (Australian sailing club risk management handbook 180704 180704 pg.4)

Safety Beach Sailing Club acknowledges Australian Sailing’s recognition of inherent risks and is committed to implementing strategies to support AS’s vision and recommendations.

By eliminating or minimising the adverse impact of all activities which may give rise to injurious or dangerous situations, risks are mitigated and potentially avoided. This requires the development of a framework, within which risk exposure can be monitored and controlled. Risk management is a tool by which persons involved can seek to meet their duties and responsibilities, and minimise their exposure to liability.
Risk Management implementation is a means of providing systematic and rigorous pathways to a safer sporting environment and experience for sailors, the public and those organising activities.

When most effective, risk management is part of an organisation’s culture and is integrated into its philosophy, practices and business plans. Like all good management practices it is driven from the top down and is recognised as the responsibility of everyone.
Risks which can be covered by a risk management program include:
Physical Risks, Legal Risks, Financial, Moral and Ethical Risks

It is SBSC’s objective to reduce the incidence of injury to participants, officials, persons associated with the club and sailing activities, as well as additional user groups enjoying the club and its facilities. And of course to ensure a safe environment for individuals to participate and enjoy sailing.
The current Risk Management committee has identified a number of current safety issues and in conjunction with the Executive Committee, significant strategies and changes have been explored and some of them implemented. There are plans for further changes in preparation for the forthcoming summer sailing season (2022), details of which will be identified in future newsletters.
