Safety Essentials guidance released

The SGSA has published a new Safety Essentials guidance which provides an introductory summary of the essentials of sports grounds safety.

It is not a comprehensive representation of all issues. However, it provides an overview of some of the fundamental principles of safety and where further information and tools can be found.

We support some of the largest sports grounds in the world, who have established safety processes and procedures in state-of-the-art facilities. But we also work with much smaller grounds, which operate on a much lower scale. Safety is equally important at all venues, whether large or small.

This guidance has been put together to provide an overview of safety at sports grounds. For the first time, we outline the five fundamental elements of safety, and provide an introductory explanation of what they mean. We also provide references to where more detailed and comprehensive information can be found, in our other guidance materials.
