RowSafe

RowSafe provides guidance on good and safe practice. RowSafe will continue to be developed in response to new standards and safety issues and, just as importantly, feedback from members.

RowSafe 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.
