Rugby club personnel have a legal duty to work within a system that anticipate and reduces foreseeable risks.
All clubs must have a formal health & safety policy, review it regularly and ensure it is implemented effectively
Northumberland EFARU courses supported by the NRU CB PFR budget 2017-18 are:
Ponteland RFC (date tbc), Morpeth RFC 18th & 25th September, Whitley Bay Rockliff RFC 12th & 19th October, Newcastle University 16th & 23rd October and Northumberland Referees (date tbc).
These courses are organised by the institution to suit their members. They cost £15 per person instead of £50
After these courses have been organised details can be found on RFU Online Course Booking.
Other clubs may wish to organise a course from the list below; if they wish financial support they may contact NRU and if the course is targeted at Age Grade volunteers the NRU Youth Charitable Trust.
