HOW TO CONDUCT A RISK ASSESSMENT FOR CORONAVIRUS for TRAINING/SWIM TECAHING VENUES- 3 Hour Workshop

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and the COGTA Disaster Management Regulations/Directions require Venue Owners, Clubs and Swim Schools to undertake a detailed Covid-19 Risk Assessment.  Undertaking a Covid Risk Assessment for your training or teaching venue can be quite a daunting challenge for Swimming Clubs and Swimming Schools.  What are Hazards? What is a Risk Assessment? What are Risk Controls? What parts of the OHSA and Disaster Management Regulations are applicable to Swimming Venues? What are the duties of a Compliance Officer? Risk Assessments will need to be submitted to Swimming South Africa and COGTA before a venue can be permitted to open. Clubs and Swim Schools have requested  a Risk Assessment Training Workshop to train relevant stakeholders.

Who should attend?

  • Covid Risk Compliance Officers
  • Coaches
  • Swim Teachers/Instructors
  • Club Owners/Chairpersons/Safety Officers
  • Swim School Owners
