Staying Safe

It’s important to be able to keep yourself and others safe when you are rowing, training and even just around your club or at a regatta.

It’s all about recognising that there might be hazards where you are doing your activity, and understanding ways that you can prevent hazardous events from occurring – which all create a more enjoyable and safe environment for everyone.

British Rowing has developed a three tier approach to the management of risk, with all three stages of the training material now available on RowHow.

There is also some important guidance around preventing and treating hypothermia.
