Soapbox Derby Risk Assessments

Bookmark and Share

Like it or not, it is a fact of life nowadays that organisers are required to pay attention to safety issues related to any event that they are running, and one of the tools that can be used for this is the risk assessment. This can be a worry, but it needn't be.

In fact, a thorough risk assessment is an extremely useful tool which can inform your event plan, course construction and competition rules. It helps you focus on the risks that really matter – the ones with the potential to cause harm to spectators, marshall and competitors.
