RowSafe

Row Safe Symbol Row Safe details safety information under five headings, each with a separate topic area following the same format:

  • responsibilities
  • minimum standards
  • further good practice
  • further information

By keeping topic areas separate and presenting the guide in a four-clip folder, individual updated pages can be easily replaced and new topics introduced. The aim is to keep all safety related matters in one place.

You can download the complete document or alternatively download the separate sections using the links below.  We also have a summary of key points from the guidance which is available to download online and also as a published leaflet.

A further resource, the Row Safe Gap Analysis Check Sheet, is available for clubs to help them check and develop their safety procedures.
