Safety lessons from sport, London

About this event

Sport is a significant and growing industry within the UK, now with the backing of its own government strategy. More and more people are engaging in higher-risk sports, and there is considerable publicity when things go wrong.

Even so, prevalent views vary widely as to risks and their tolerability, the effectiveness and reasonableness of control measures, and who should be responsible for what. Furthermore, preparation and planning can help manage risks up to a point, but individual and/or team behaviour will remain at the centre of safety.

This evening event will look at how risk-based issues in sport relate to high-hazard activities in other areas.

The evening's event will be followed by a 2-day research conference on 22-23 June, hosted in Loughborough by the CIEHF, on the impact of human factors on competitiveness and safety in sport.
