The overall responsibility for health and safety matters associated with Brading Haven Yacht Club (BHYC) is vested in the Commodore. This policy statement is to be observed throughout the Club and integral Recognised Teaching Establishments. It reflects the importance that BHYC attaches to the health, safety and well-being of all Members, Guests, Staff and other persons who may be affected by our activities.
To ensure that BHYC meets its responsibilities it will:
In addition, each Member of the Club and its Staff is required to take responsible care for their own health and safety and that of other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions. This requires the reporting to the Committee of any situation that gives rise to serious or immediate danger, or shortcomings that may create danger. Further, all Members and Staff are required to obey instructions issued in respect of health and safety.
Sailing can be demanding and, at times, dangerous. All Members and Staff should endeavour to develop their personal competence through appropriate training and experience.
It is the responsibility of the Skipper of each boat to decide whether to start or continue a race or voyage in light of his or her competence and the ability of the crew for the conditions likely to be encountered.
This Policy Statement will be reviewed every two years on change of Commodore.
Keith Gentleman - Commodore
