Health and Safety / Welfare
British Rowing is our governing body, and we comply with their Safeguarding and Welfare policies to ensure that we are adhering to best practice.
Health and Safety
- Believe that harm is not an inevitable consequence of our activities and that incidents that cause harm can be avoided.
- Will strive to provide an environment in which the sport can be practiced safely and enjoyably by our members.
- Will guide and lead our members in a way that fulfills these aims.
- Recognise that our members have primary responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others.
The Club, through the Committee, will encourage safe practice having due regard for the guidance provided by British Rowing in RowSafe.
The Club has safety rules that it expects its members to respect; these can be found here.
Complying with these rules will help to prevent harm.

Everyone has equal rights to safety and protection; we do not tolerate any form of abuse.
