23 Jan - Risk Assessment Template
A Risk Assessment Template is now available on the our websitefor those clubs who wish to use it. The SDCCGB designed the original document in response to club requests. We hope clubs will find this useful. This Risk Assessment is a simple reminder of practical issues that should be considered by club organisers. It also reminds dancers of their responsibilities in regard to health and safety. Risk Assessments are now commonly requested when booking halls. Clubs/Callers are at liberty to add or subtract any risks that might be applicable/not applicable to their particular situation. You may use this as an introduction to the template if you feel it is appropriate. Click for Template
