Learning Recap
1 - What measures are in place to ensure health and safety at sports events?
2 - What events in the past have forced health and safety to be reviewed at sporting venues?
3 - Who else implements change in health and safety procedures in society?
'A legislative factor relates to making or enforcing the law. Due to the ever-changing nature of sport and the number of hazards and risks associated with it, there is key legislation that imports on sport within the UK'

Health and Safety at Work Act (1974)
The Act requires employers to ensure ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’ the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other persons who may be affected by their work. This includes sub-contractors and the general public.
The Act also covers the duties of employees at work. They must take reasonable care for the safety of themselves and of other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions. They should co-operate with their employers and others in carrying out their statutory obligations
Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR, 1995)
RIDDOR is the law that requires employers, and other people who are in control ofwork premises, to report and keep records of:

Work-related deaths

Certain serious injuries (reportable injuries)

Diagnosed cases of certain industrial diseases

Certain ‘dangerous occurrences’ (near-miss incidents)
Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR, 1995) CONT
RIDDOR is in place to allow the HSE to:
Follow up, report and check safety practices and operational procedures
Ensure a standardised report is used
Allow officers from the HSE to advise organisations on prevention of further accident and illness
Allow an investigation to prosecute, prohibit and make improvements where necessary
Personal Protective Equipment PPE (2002)
PPE is equipment that will protect the user against health or safety risks at work. It can include items such as safety helmets and hard hats, gloves, eye protection,high-visibility clothing, safety footwear and safety harnesses
Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH, 2002)
1) Finding out what the health hazards are

2) Deciding how to prevent harm to health (risk assessment)

3) Providing control measures to reduce harm to health

4) Making sure they are used

5) Keeping all control measures in good working order

6) Providing information, instruction and training for employees and others

7)providing monitoring and health surveillance in appropriate cases

8)planning for emergencies

COSHH is the law that requires employers to control substances that are hazardous to health and includes nanomaterials. You can prevent or reduce workers' exposure to hazardous substances by
Health and Safety (First-aid) Regulations (1981)
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work
Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992)

Reduce the risk of injury from those operations so far as is reasonably practicable. Where possible, you should provide mechanical assistance, for example a sack trolley or hoist. Where this is not reasonably practicable, look at ways of changing the task, the load and working environment

The Regulations establish the following clear hierarchy of control measures -
Avoid hazardous manual handling operations so far as is reasonably practicable, for example by redesigning the task to avoid moving the load or by automating or mechanising the process
Make a suitable and sufficient assessment of any hazardous manual handling operations that cannot be avoided
Group Activity # 1
In groups of 4, summarise the following legislations and/or acts
- Group 1 -
Management of Health and Safety Regulations (1999)
- Group 2 -
Fire Safety and Safety Places of Sport Act (1987)
- Group 3 -
Adventurous Activities Licensing Authority Regulations (2004)
Why - Purpose - Guidelines - Who
Management of Health and Safety Regulations (1999)

Assess the risk to the young person before they being employment
Take into consideration a young persons psychological or physical immaturity, inexperience and lack of awareness of existing or potential risks
Introduce control measures to eliminate or minimise the risks, so far as is reasonably practicable

Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, an employer has a responsibility to ensure that young people employed by them are not exposed to risk due to:
Fire Safety and Safety of Places of Sport Act (1987)
This legislation was brought into effect as a result of the Popplewell Inquiry, which examined the safety of sports ground following the devasating fire at Bradford City in May 1985
1) Fire safety
2) The safety of sports grounds
3) The safety of stands at sports grounds
4) Indoor sports licences (Covered stadia)
5) Miscellaneous and general section relating to fees and exemption
Adventurous Activities Licensing Authority Regulations (2004)
Adventure activities licensing ensures that activity providers follow good safety management practices. These should allow young people to experience exciting and stimulating activities outdoors without being exposed to avoidable risks of death or disabling injury
