Northern Archers of Sydney Inc. is mindful of the risks associated with conducting archery activities and events at Club and State level. In an effort to minimize these risks, Northern Archers of Sydney Inc. has developed a risk management plan and range shooting policy, which will provide a safer sporting environment and experience for club archers and the general public. Members must be aware of and have read both these documents.
Duty of Care
Northern Archers of Sydney Inc., Club officials, and members owe a duty of care to participants and spectators in archery events and activities where there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of harm or injury to participants and spectators as a result of their actions. In exercising this duty of care, the law requires officials to take reasonable steps to reduce the likelihood of injury to participants and spectators as a result of those risks, which are foreseeable.
This is the rationale underpinning the Risk Management Plan of Northern Archers of Sydney Inc. – in this case, the process of identifying risks involved in activities such as casual/social shooting, practice, and the conducting archery competitions and activities, and then adopting strategies and actions designed to reduce these risks wherever possible.
Any activity that appears unsafe or contrary to Northern Archers safety plans should be reported to the Secretary ASAP (firstname.lastname@example.org) - all communications in this respect can be dealt with confidentially if anyone so chooses.
Northern Archers is governed by Archery Australias' (AA) National Policy no 1003 Sept 2015 and Archery New South Wales Member Protection Framework.
