Health and Safety is extremely important to us and we have quite a few measures in place to cover this:
Our registered Nurse is in attendance from 8am -12pm who brings with her a basic first aid kit including an epi pen. First Aid is located at the entrance to the Club rooms. The Centre also has a defibrillator and several committee members are qualified to use this.
Marquees are placed around the track for sun relief. We also offer a small supply of sun screen located at the first aid station but encourage all members to apply sunscreen before they arrive at the track and then top up as needed. We encourage all members to wear a hat when not competing.
LAVIC has a heat policy which we respond to accordingly as required.
Our Committee, Coaches, AGM’s all have valid working with children checks.
Sandringham Little Athletics is committed to ensuring the protection and wellbeing of all children and young people who are members of Little Athletics. The Child Protection Policy has been endorsed by the Association as part of our commitment to proactively ensure the rights of children and young people to safety and to act without hesitation in the maintenance of a safe environment for children.
