Safety issues concerning the organisation of Club and District Events

District Health & Safety Officer: Stephan Stephan

As Rotarians, we can have fun in a responsible way so long as we plan our events sensibly. We all have a duty of care for the Health & Safety of ourselves and others. Furthermore, in order to secure RIBI insurance cover, clubs are required, in the event of a claim, to demonstrate that they have undertaken H&S Risk Assessments and are managing all H&S aspects of events organised, including Protection, where applicable.

Clubs are increasingly trying new ways to raise funds and / or get involved in the local community. H&S Seminars / Surgeries for District 1090 Clubs are held regularly to offer Club H&S officers, Committee Chairs and all those involved in H&S in any way an opportunity to share and learn from each other.

Resources to help Clubs plan successful events are now available through the Related Pages on the right hand side. These include presentations given at H&S and Protection Seminars, Insurance details and templates for Risk Assessments. Good examples of H&S templates and Risk Assessments of various Club activities will continue to be uploaded on this website for guidance, as and when these become available. Please keep them coming! Thank you.

In an increasingly litigious society, it is important that all Rotary Clubs comply with the law to avoid any loopholes being exploited to negate our Insurance. Please see the latest forms from brokers, Bartlett and RIBI, available for download from the Insurance page
