The process of examination and assessment of projects to identify possible risk is called Risk Management.
District 9940 has developed a manual to assist Rotary leaders in the District, in Clubs and other associated organisations to apply risk management procedures to all their activities. Clear guidelines are given to the nature of identifiable risks and the steps to limit their occurrence and identify the safeguards Rotary Clubs should take when undertaking any project.
Rotarian's must understand that a risk management assessment must be completed along with a documented mitigation plan for identified risks for any project carried out in a public or private place because everybody involved (organisers AND participants) will be subject to the requirements - and penalties - of the new 2016 Health & Safety legislation.
For any programmes involving Youth and Young Adults, there are special requirements which are addressed in the manual. See also the page Youth Protection.
Club leaders are encouraged to refer to this manual which can be downloaded from the Administration section in the Documents page.
