Health and Safety for CLubs

Clubs Health and Safety Manual

Health and Safety obligations of property owners and employers place responsibilities on all clubs. Information on this site is a guide to helping your club plan and implement health and safety procedures. There are different health and safety responsibilities for clubs depending on if you employ people or not and the following manual's will help to explain this further.

  • Club Rugby (PCBU) Health and Safety Manual Template. Designed for Rugby Clubs if they meet the criteria as a PCBU (that is the Club employ someone therefore they are considered as a person conducting a business or undertaking)
  • Club Rugby (non-PCBU) Health and Safety Manual Template. Designed for a purely voluntary sporting organisation. The club does not employ anyone and as such the H&S law doesn’t cover them however there still is an expectation of a basic level of health and safety particularly around the game and competition / tournament management.

Note: In order for a club to be affiliated to the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union, clubs are now required to submit their health and safety plan to the Union. This is submitted on a yearly basis with team entries. Information around this will be sent to clubs early on in the 2018 season.
