Risk Matrix and how to use:
To find the overall risk, you multiply the risk rating by the likelyhood of it happening to make the overall danger rating. If green then it is a minimal risk and someone isn’t likely to get hurt when it occurs. Orange is of a greater risk and someone is likely to get hurt or injured if it occurs and red is where the injury/outcome is likely to be severe if it occurred.
|Area of risk: Catching Covid 19 What areas of risk are there?||Arrangements in place What has been put in place to reduce the risk of dangers||Risk Rating||Likelyhood||Overall||Reviewed by Who is in charge for following/checking the arrangements are happening.|
|Social distancing with the public who are accessing the bar. With the public who are watching the matches. Signage for social distancing Overcrowding at one way system Substitutes and managers/people on the sidelines who are not spectators||One way system in place from the entrance to the premises to allow access to toilets, bar and benches. All people encouraged to maintain a 2 meter distance from others. Players must also follow one way system and maintain social distancing when accessing the pitches of facilities. The bench area is situated away from both pitches. Players will be discouraged from bringing spectators to matches. For cases where this is not manageable i.e child care arrangements fell through etc, spectators will be shown to an area distanced at least 2 meters from the pitch and away from any player/team designated areas for the game. They will also be reminded to adhere to social distancing rules. Clear signs and tape on the floor to show one way system and to help maintain social distancing. If needed, captains to walk the players to the end of the car park away from the one way system and around the pitches that way to reduce crowding. Each team will be allocated an area of the pitch for warm ups, warm downs and training spaces. During the game an area will be allocated to each team that is approximately 1 metre or further away from the side-lines of the pitch. All non-playing members of a team must stay within these parameters.||3||1||3||Onsite managers, captains and committee members Individual players/attendees|
