Transcript of Unit 3 P4, M3, D2
The Health & Safety at Work regulations 1999, state that organisations such as schools, places of work, leisure centres, sports clubs should display clear systems, policies and procedures in place for managing health & safety in the workplace.
By law employers have to show things such as:
Action taken when a fire alarm is sounded, how to raise this alarm in an emergency, how to call the fire brigade, fire extinguisher points, dire doors, where the fire escapes are located and where the fire muster points are located.
The location of the first aid points/boxes, name and location of the trained first aider.
P4 Risk Assessment
Risk assessments are done to reduce and identify any risks to anyone in the work place. This is done to prevent injuries done in everyday tasks.
These would then be considered and evaluated to decide whether to take part in the activity/task.
Staff training is when an organisation gives training to staff. For example, in leisure centres training would include getting a DBS check and specific health and safety guidelines to certain sports.
Also involves organisations keeping up to date with the legislations, regulations and codes of practice currently in place.

P4 M3 D2 Describe, Explain and Analyse three procedures used to promote and maintain a healthy and safe sporting environment
D2 Staff Training
S- A strength of staff training is that it ensures all staff have an understanding of the procedures in an emergency situation.
W- Within the training, a staff member may house train another member of staff and this can result in miscommunication of the procedures.
O- One thing that is gained is that a member of staff can use the skills and procedures learned outside of the workplace that can potentially save somebodies life.
T- If an organisation does not do this then it can lead to potential harm to clients as well as employees in an emergency situation.
M3 Risk Assessment
Risk assessments are done to reduce harm to anyone at a workplace. This will lead to a safer working environment.
For example, a building site would have many risk assessments such as falling from high heights. These would then be acted on by putting in railings or increasing the size of the ledge/platform.
D2 Emergency Procedure Protocols
S – A strength of this is that it gives athletes and clients a sense of safety and knowing that they are safe in the environment in an emergency.
W – A weakness of this could be that during an emergency procedure inflicting stress could be caused as well as panic and stress which could then lead onto further injury of others as well as yourself.
O – A thing that’s gained is that with these procedures any flaw can be easily identified and then resolved easily.
T – A threat could be that in an emergency flaws can be missed which leads to prosecution due to neglecting the injured participants.
M3 Emergency Procedure Protocols
The reasoning behind these is to make sure that employees as well as clients are as safe as possible when under the care of an organisation. This involves them being safe in any situation such as fire drills, bomb alerts, building evacuations as well as taking part in general activities.
For example a leisure centre would have to make sure that people taking part in things such as health & diet clubs are safe with the equipment they use and that they are aware of any harm that could come to them whilst taking part.
D2 Risk Assessment
They outline issues that can harm individuals and then find ways to resolve them. It helps protect athletes from potential injury during sports.
In some sports/situations such as Rugby will need longer and more detailed risk assessments because there is a higher chance of injury.
They reduce common risks that are harmful to people as well as educating others of the risks involved. This allows them to understand various situations and what risks are involved.
Risk assessments can disrupt the enjoyment of activities due to it being too dangerous. This can lead to people not participating in the sport because it is no longer enjoyable.
M3 Staff Training
Staff training is done to ensure health and safety at the workplace is effective and that there are minimal risks. This would also include training in emergency situations so that injuries are prevented and staff have an understanding of what to do in situations such as fire drills.
For example a leisure centre would pay for a member of staff to do a first aid course. This enables there to be at least one qualified first aider on site anytime.
