Transcript of Copy of Know how to maintain the safety of participants and colleagu

Know how to maintain the safety of participants and colleagues in a sports environment.
Normal Operating Procedures
All sports facilities work to a set of operating procedures – Standard/Normal Operating Procedures or S/NOPS
The S/NOPS contain safety programme, health and safety issues (alarm testing), operational procedures for maintenance or customer complaints
Everyday tasks required to be completed in order for facility to run smoothly/safely.

Risk Assessments are a vital part of the NOPS.

Normal Operating Procedures
Staff Training and Development
Used to keep up to date with latest regulations, policies and procedures

How can this happen?
1.External courses, seminars, conferences
2. Internal training
Examples of courses?

Emergency Operating Procedures
For what?
Fire evacuation, bomb alerts, injury and first aid procedures

All procedures need to be clear to all staff in the event of emergencies and can be written into risk assessments with control measures minimising risk

As an organisation these protocols could be placed on the intranet, a club could use their website or a laminated copy on a field visit

Emergency Operating Procedures
First Aid
In conjunction with Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations (1981) all employers must have adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to their employees who are injured or become ill at work

All employees certificates must be clearly visible and accessible to all staff

Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) influences employers to provide first aid in their workplace and should consider nature of workplace, hazards/risks, size of premises, previous accident information, annual leave of first aiders and proximity to emergency services
Emergency Operating Procedures
Communications cascade system for notification of incidents
If an injury occurs the activity should be stopped immediately
After incident is dealt with it needs reporting- firstly verbally and then written into accident book

What should be written down?
Nature of incident
Anybody else involved
Action taken
Reliable witnesses (never trust anybody’s word!)
Safety Procedures and Protocols
Establish and Maintain a Safe Environment by producing a written commitment (such as a code of conduct, charter or mission statement)

It will include procedures in place for the safety of those who work and enjoy the use of facilities, preventative measures to keep dangerous situations to a minimum, all employees maintain high standards to create a safe environment

What would be included for a Swimming Pool policy for both employers, employees and participants? Think about handbooks, posters and rules?

Governing Bodies
Give examples of different sports governing bodies?

With support from Sports Coach UK they will have guidelines for coaches/sports leaders in the form of a Code of Conduct or Code of Practice

What might be included in one?

Equipment Manufacturers’ guidelines
The use of and assembly of all sports equipment will come with manufacturers instructions and guidelines and will contain the EU approval mark

Equipment could include netball posts, basketball nets, football goals, badminton posts, inflating balls, fitting face guards onto helmets etc

Describe three procedures used to promote and maintain a healthy and safe sporting environment (P4). 

If you explain three procedures used to promote and maintain a healthy and safe sporting environment you achieve (M3). 

If you analyse three procedures used to promote and maintain a healthy and safe sporting environment then (D2) achieved.

Ethics, attitudes, fairness, discrimination, moral aspect, avoid conflict, disassociate themselves with a ‘win at all costs’ attitude, health safety welfare and moral education of the young people

Find a NGB Code of Practice and refer to it in your task work as support for task 3.
