Risk Management in Sports

(For All NROC Coaches)


Every sport and recreational event involves risk. The type and level of risk depends on variables such as the activity, location and environment, skill level and number of participants, weather conditions and number of spectators, etc.

Risks to health, safety and well-being are implicit to sport and recreation. Participants must be aware of the various possible risks involved. Organisers have a legal responsibility to take reasonable steps to manage such risks.

Effective risk management applies a clear process to identify, analyse and evaluate event-related risk. This will assist to deliver a positive and safe event for all stakeholders.

At the end of this 1.5-day course, participants will have a deeper understanding of Risk Management and the process.
