British Gymnastics regards the health, safety and welfare of all members to be of paramount importance, which should not be compromised. To this end, it is BG policy to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, that procedures are in place to maintain a safe and healthy environment not only for our members but also for other persons who may be affected by the activities of BG and/or our affiliated clubs and organisations.
The BG Health & Safety Management System has been designed to support BG affiliated clubs and organisations to comply with the BG policy and any relevant legal requirements. This document is available to download on GymNet.
