Health and Safety

West Wittering Sailing Club has an active approach to health and safety based on identifying and managing risk. Policies and practice are regularly reviewed by the Committee in the light of experience and best practice. Key elements of our approach to health and safety include:

  1. Health and Safety Management System: this is an overarching framework which includes risk assessments for all of WWSC's waterborne and shore based activities. The system folder contains duly authorised risk assessments signed by relevant club officers, this is kept for inspection in the Club Hut. You can see it all here Safety Management System (2024). Jeremy Western is the nominated Club Safety Officer and any queries should be addressed to him in the first instance. You may contact him by email here.
  2. Safety Log: this is a hard copy manual in which members are asked to record any incidents of concern. The log is kept in the Club Hut and reviewed regularly at committee meetings. Remedial actions are recorded in the log where appropriate.
  3. Detailed Operating Instructions for race management teams and patrol boat crews are provided here and in hard copy form (on laminated sheets) in the Club Hut. Names of qualified First Aiders are also available in this format. Waterborne Activity Risk Assessments play an important part in managing sailing events. A copy of the assessment Forms and Guide are available here Waterborne Risk Assessment Forms
  4. First Aiders: We encourage members to complete the RYA's First Aid training and arrange subsidised courses to make this easier. There is a list of those holding this qualification in the Members Area of our website here. All RYA qualified instructors must have this qualification.
