Risk Management

Helping you improve player safety

Risk Management is a process of systematically identifying risks and eliminating or reducing the likelihood and consequences of an accident occurring. Even with a basic of risk management systems in place, a Netball Club will be better equipped to provide a safe environment for all players, officials and volunteers. It will also help England Netball and its members to continue to benefit from a comprehensive and competitively-priced insurance programme.

To help, England Netball has developed a Risk Assessment Checklist designed to highlight issues that can be addressed to reduce the risk of injuries; its proper use should also assist a Clubs defence if somebody seeks compensation as a result of a loss or injury.

In the event of an accident, ensure that:

  • The first-aider is called immediately to administer to anyone with an injury
  • The Accident Report Form is completed and filed for future reference as this may be requested in the event of a claim
