Club Policy and Procedures
Why are policies and procedures important to the running of Sutton Dinghy Club?
Clubs need policies for a number of reasons. Policies formalise and document the club’s rules and procedures and they can be used as a reference in case a dispute or a controversial incident occurs. Policies also provide a how-to guide for the committee, staff, members and volunteers and is particularly useful when new committee members or volunteers come on board. Documented policies and procedures are critical components of our club’s risk management plan. The following sections outline key policy areas that the Committee in Sutton Dinghy Club has considered and documented.
This is an ongoing work in progress and the Committee welcomes any views, thoughts or ideas that will enable us to improve the running of the club and ensure a continued positive experience for all our members, staff and guests.
Safety Statement, Safety Policy and Safeguarding Policy
The overall aim of the safety statement and policies are to make sure that all the club members, employees and guests of the club can enjoy the sport of sailing in the safest possible environment. In doing this, however, it must be recognized that, whilst every possible precaution can be taken, participation in sailing, as with any other water-based physical activity, does have risks which cannot be anticipated.
Emergency Action Plan
The purpose of an Emergency Action Plan is to facilitate and organise staff, members and volunteer actions during workplace emergencies. The Emergency Action Plan sets out how the staff and members of Sutton Dinghy Club should react in the event of an Incident / accident. This should assist them in making correct decisions and taking appropriate action.
