A State Sporting Organisations (SSOs) or State Sporting Organisation for people with Disability (SSOD) risk management policy provides the framework to manage the risks associated with the organisation’s core activities, including the management of the sport itself.  

The objectives of a Risk Management Policy are to:

  • to protect the SSO from all areas of operation;
  • to reduce the incidence of injury to participants, officials and other persons;
  • to provide a fun, healthy and safe sporting environment; and
  • to minimise potential liability as a result of poor management.

As with any legal documents, this does not replace obtaining legal advice on each sport’s specific requirements and it is recommended you do so.
