UK Athletics is committed to providing a safe environment for all athletes, officials and coaches. It will promote standards of health, safety and welfare within athletics and ensure compliance with all relevant statutory provisions.
It is the responsibility of coaches and athletes to ensure that all training sessions are conducted in a safe manner. In order to guarantee the above, the following approved codes of practices should be followed. In view of the wide ranging circumstances in which athletic events take place, the implementation of the recommended control measures does not preclude the possibility that additional control measures may need to be employed, which will either eliminate risks or reduce them to an acceptable level.
