Dogs NSW Logo BlueSafety at Shows - Insurance

All Clubs are reminded that it is the Committees responsibility to ensure that Shows/Trials are conducted in a safe environment for both the exhibitors and the public. Clubs need to be familiar with Dogs NSW Regulations Part II, Section 9 - Extreme Weather & Safety Guidelines. It is very important for Clubs to conduct a site assessment of the area on which the Show/Trial is being conducted prior to event commencement to ensure that there are no risks evident, such but not limited to, uneven ground in pedestrian traffic areas or exhibition areas, lengthy or wet grass, ring ropes or uncovered electrical cords on the grounds, as these are a trip hazard which may result in an injury to a person attending the Show/Trial.

brown snake editThere have been a number of recent snake sightings at Dogs NSW grounds over the last few days, particularly now as the weather is warming up.
