RowSafe provides safety advice to rowers, clubs, events and anyone else who takes part in rowing.
The purpose of RowSafe is to help people participate in rowing without putting themselves and others at unacceptable risk. It makes clear that everyone is expected to take care of their own safety and the safety of others.

RowSafe is set out in thirteen chapters, each dealing with a specific topic. There are hyperlinks to other sections of RowSafe and to other information on the British Rowing website and beyond.
RowSafe can be viewed and downloaded as a single document, or as individual chapters. You can search for specific topics in RowSafe (using ctrl + f) or read each individual chapter.
RowSafe will evolve as we learn from experience and receive feedback from the rowing community. If you have any feedback regarding RowSafe, or if you have any comments or questions, then please email email@example.com. The next revision of RowSafe is due in Spring 2018.
