Health and Safety Advice

England Athletics provide affiliated clubs with a Health and Safety Helpline, supported by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

If you need any help with producing a policy or risk assessments you can call 0121 248 2235 or email athleticsafety@RoSPA.com 

Clubs should document a Health and Safety policy that is relevant to their activities and carry out the required risk assessments. Both the Policy and Risk Assessment should be written down, accepted by the Committee and then communicated to all members in a simple and easy to understand way.

Clubs can find more guidance and advice on Health and Safety including writing policies and risk assessment in the Health and Safety part of Club Hub.

If you have an incident, accident or fatality you can report it here. Once reported this will generate a report to UK Athletics who use the information to help manage incidents, accidents and fatalities. Please also notify your club committee via your Club Secretary if you make a report.
