ELIMINATING HAZARDS

Another of the many tasks of a coach is to check that the players have a safe environment. ACC and the NZ Rugby have developed a health and safety checklist to assist you in identifying and eliminating hazards. This will help to reduce the number of injuries and should allow greater enjoyment for participants.

The rugby environment includes not only the weather but also the facilities, surfaces and equipment that are being used. Make sure you assess all these factors before play or training starts.
