We have developed a Risk Management policy at Jamberoo which requires us
to identify hazards and assess the risk of someone getting injured. We
believe that this is a requirement, or at least a recommendation, of the
'Duty of Care' legislation.
Assessing the risks requires us to identify the likelihood of an
incident/accident occurring and the consequences if such an accident did
occur. Things with a high likelihood and/or high consequence need to
be acted on to minimise the risk.
By identifying the risks in this way we can feed the actions into our
development budget to ensure that we allocate funds to mitigate the
risks. In fact the safety issues are given a high priority in where we
We have had a few, relatively minor accidents, often associated with
people tripping over hoops. Fortunately they haven't resulted in anyone
breaking bones but with people of a senior age, a fall could result in
broken bones and so it is important for us all to consider the risks and
try to minimise them as much as possible.
I imagine that the risks we have identified are reasonably common to all
croquet clubs but we would be interested in whether we may have missed any.
