Event Safeguarding Officer Training – Safeguarding Essentials
Safeguarding in sport means the process and proactive action we take to protect sport participants from harassment or abuse through appropriate prevention and response measures. World Rowing is committed to creating and supporting an environment and a culture free from harassment and abuse. This includes safeguarding during World Rowing sanctioned events through the designation of a World Rowing event safeguarding officer. The Local Organising Committees are also responsible for appointing a safeguarding officer as a key functional role within the OC structure.
This short introductory course is intended to provide key and basic information on safeguarding essentials during sport events. It is meant to help the safeguarding officers appointed for specific events to understand their roles and responsibilities and take on their roles with confidence. Making rowing safe and free from harassment and abuse is the responsibility of everyone and we hope you enjoy this short course. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
