With the introduction of the Safety at Sports and Recreational Events Act 2010 (Gazetted June 2010) the SAOF has put together a booklet containing guidelines to event liability. It is extremely important that Clubs use this booklet to draw up a plan to manage event liability. The SAOF has a Public Liability Insurance policy but, due to the introduction of the Act, no claims will be considered unless the event in question is a) on the SAOF calendar and b) has an Event Liability plan drawn up and available at each event. It is each Club’s responsibility to ensure that this Event Liability plan is available at all of the events that they host.
