Safety First

Wednesday 25 October 2017


Whilst accidents during throws events remain rare, a tragic fatality and a concerning number of near misses/incidents has led UKA to release new safety guidance as a means of reinforcing important protocols and raising the awareness of the potential dangers of throwing events.

Athlete, coaches and officials all have a responsibility to ensure that athletic events are conducted safely and this applies just as much during training as in competition.

The attached bulletin issued by UK Athletics contains good advice and is recommended reading.
