Club Safety Audit

The Club Safety Audit is a recognised part of each club’s affiliation and is annually launched in October for online submission.

The Club Safety Audit is based on RowSafe and consists of a number of sections including club details, equipment, safety management documents, first aid, incident reporting, training camps, and trailers. All Club Rowing Safety Advisors (CRSAs) have now received an email detailing the process. If your CRSA has not received an email, please contact [email protected] and ensure that your club profile is up to date on ClubHub.

The audit must be completed, submitted online and accepted by your Regional Rowing Safety Adviser before 16 November 2021. Your Regional Rowing Safety Adviser (RRSA) will then contact you directly to confirm that your safety audit has been accepted.

Any clubs which do not submit their audit and have it accepted by the deadline, are suspended from racing from 6 December 2021. If there are legitimate reasons why your club will be unable to meet this deadline, it is essential that your RRSA is informed as early in the process as possible.

The audit consists of a number of sections including club details, equipment, safety management documents, first aid, incident reporting, training camps, and trailers. To prepare yourself, have a look at the questions here.

Whether you are a Non Rowing Club, an Individual or Host Club, or a Hosted Club, will determine the number and actual questions that need to be answered by a club and all clubs need to complete the audit so that British Rowing and your club can get confirmation that they are Hosting or Being Hosted and the Level of Host Cover, i.e.,

  •  the Host covers all Policies and the Safety Adviser
  •  the host provides the facility but the Policies and Safety Adviser are the Hosted Clubs

In addition to submitting their audit, clubs are required to upload relevant safety documentation, including their Club Safety Plan, to their club Google Drive folder. For any Club Rowing Safety Advisers (CRSAs) who are new or unfamiliar with Google Drive, a guide has been created, below, to help manage your documents.

This year’s audit has been divided by region and a link to each can be found on the list below.

For any queries, please contact your RRSA.
