Covid 19 Class Risk Assessment

 

Surrey Wing Chun (SWC) RISK ASSESSMENT – ADDITIONAL TOPIC COVID-19

 

The SWC recognises that all risks cannot be reduced to zero; therefore this risk assessment prioritises the significant risks in line with Government Guidance. For all activities, Instructors will dynamically assess risks and put in place control measures and record as required. Concerns, changes in risk management practice that are seen by Instructors to be significant should be reported to surreywingchun@gmail.com.

 

IMPORTANT

 

This Risk Assessment should be read in conjunction with SWC Health & Safety Policy, and our Risk Assessments (as appropriate) and the latest Government Guidance https://bit.ly/Govtguidelines

 

As a result of COVID-19,the SWC has produced this Risk Assessment to help our Clubs comply with the Government Guidelines. It is important to understand that these measures are taken in a bid to minimise the risk of COVID-19 being passed between participants whilst Training. SWC and our Clubs will do their upmost to provide a safe environment but take no responsibility for members who contract COVID-19, however contracted. The responsibility for a safe training environment is shared between the Instructors and the members. Members must make their own risk assessment as to where, when or whether they will train. Members have the responsibility to NOT train or attend the class if they have any symptoms that may be in anyway related to COVID-19. Furthermore, if they have had contact with anyone who has, or is suspected of being infected with the COVID-19 virus they must NOT train and should follow government guidelines on isolation, timescales etc.

 

The responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of those under 18 years of age is with the parent/guardian. Please note that this risk assessment is by no means exhaustive or comprehensive – other risks may emerge. SWC will continue to work within the latest Government guidelines and therefore this risk assessment will be reviewed and updated as necessary.
