Safety and Risk Management workshop – 16th Feb

Safety and Risk Managment Workshop

Canoeing Victoria is currently organising a one day workshop on safety and risk management on:

Sat 16th Feb 2008 – 9am – 4pm
at Canoeing Victoria in Westerfolds Park, Templestowe. 


The cost of the workshop will be members & nominated club volunteers $10, non-members $250. This includes manuals, morning & afternoon tea.

The workshop will cover both the sport (competition), as well as the recreational (touring/expedition) sides of canoeing.  We encourage event managers/coordinators, safety officers, instructors, guides & coaches to attend. 

The workshop will have a practical focus on understanding and applying Australian Canoeing's safety and risk management policys, procedures and checklists.  At the end of the workshop, we envisage that each participant will be well on the way to completing an Australian Canoeing Safety
Checklist for an event/activity relevant to their responsibilities, and will have an action plan to address any issues that are identified during the workshop. 

Bookings can be made online via the calendar at or by phoning the Canoeing Victoria office.  If you would like any further information, please contact Andrea on 0430366442. 

In the interim, included below are the links to some of the safety & risk management information that is available via the Australian Canoeing website.  Please feel free to contact either Sharon Swoboda or Andrea at Canoeing Victoria if you have any questions or if we can be of any assistance.
