Health and safety seminars tailored for golf managers

Recognising that many golf managers find health and safety issues tedious, consultancy Britrisk Safety has organised a series of events aimed at the golf industry.

Announced at the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition, GolfRisk 2014 brings together speakers including Health & Safety Executive (HSE) principal inspector Mike Walters and course designer Howard Swan to advise clubs how to reduce risk and maximise profit.

"Golf clubs often see factors such as health and safety management as peripheral to the main business and legal compliance can be seen as a bureaucratic jungle rather than real risk and injury reduction," said Britrisk managing director Tom Searle.

"By liaising in detail with the insurance industry and the HSE, clubs can get risk management off the written page and into routine three-dimensional club life."

The first event will be held at Altonwood's Surrey National Golf Club on 26 March. For further details, see
