3 What is this unit all about? This unit will give you a good understanding of a range of health and safety issues connected to sport and help you put measures in place to help people taking part in sport avoid injury. It also looks at the type of things that can cause injury and some of the rules that are in place to try and prevent them. You will look at the types of injury that can occur in sport and will have to show that you can deal with them in the correct manner.

4 Making sense of the Pass Criteria! The key verbs you need to know to achieve the pass criteria are Describe – paint a picture in words Deal with – take control of and take action Complete – start and finish a task

5 Pass 1…… Describe 6 risks and hazards associated with sports participation Hazard = something that can cause harm or injury - like an icy football pitch Risk = the likelihood that the hazard will actually occur – this could be a high chance or a low chance maybe

6 Pass 1 ….. have a go! Have a go at this introductory activity to help your understanding of P1. Dont worry - its a gentle introduction to risks and hazards! Canoe hazards.doc

7 Pass 1……some really important information! Hazards and risks can include (and be affected by) some of the following: PeopleEquipmentEnvironment Poor or no warm-up Poor levels of fitness Participants eating or drinking (alcohol) before playing Poor technique or over training Poor behaviour of other players etc. Inappropriate clothing Lack of protective clothing or equipment Playing surface Faulty or damaged equipment Cold weather i.e. snow or icy pitch Wet weather i.e. flooding, muddy pitch, lightening Hot weather i.e. sunstroke, dehydration

8 Pass 1…… Once you are able to identify potential hazards and risks with sports participation you then need to be able to describe them – remembering a description paints a picture in words Have a look at the attached examples so you can see the amount of detail you need to go into RISKS AND HAZARDS IN SPORT - example answer 1.doc

9 Pass 1…with a bit of Pass 6 as well! One of the best ways to prevent accidents occurring in sport is to complete a RISK ASSESSMENT – a Document that in a nutshell: Identifies hazards Identifies who can be harmed by the hazard Identifies the risk associated with the hazard Identifies steps that can be taken or put in place to remove the hazard or reduce the chance of it occurring Click onto the links below to look at a couple of example risk assessments

10 Pass 6…..go on, have a go! A bit of practice completing a risk assessment form would not go amiss… have a go at completing the attached form for a sport of your choice. Dont be afraid of making a mistake or two – now is the time to do it!! Risk assessment template.doc

11 A bit more learning (for those up to it)! THE RUGBY SCRUM The rugby scrum can be a dangerous place. Have a look at the video link…… …..and then have a go at the following crossword (general injury crossword) Sport Injury Crossword Puzzle.doc The answers!! Sport Injury Crossword Puzzle - ANSWERS.docSport Injury Crossword Puzzle - ANSWERS.doc The following links also make interesting reading…….why not take a closer look to improve your understanding of health & safety in rugby. - general rugby safety - scrum safety - scrum safety 610927.html - scrum safety 610927.html - scrum safety

12 RISK ASSESSMENT EXAMPLE – THE RUGBY SCRUM Many injuries can be prevented if a risk assessment is carried out before a game or training. Doing this will: Identify what can cause injury i.e. the scrum Identify who may be injured i.e. the forwards, especially the front-row Identify how serious the injury may be i.e. serious as paralysis can occur Identify how likely the hazard is to occur i.e. very likely All the above will allow you to do the most important thing – PUT IN PLACE MEASURES TO ENSURE INJURIES DO NOT OCCUR, OR ARE LESS LIKELY TO OCCUR, SUCH AS: Make sure the players are trained in how to scrummage correctly Make sure the referee stops the game if the scrummage is not formed properly or foul tactics are being used

13 Last bit on P1….with some useful information for P2 thrown in! To move onto the merit criteria you will be assessed on your ability to describe and explain risks and hazards associated with sport….so the attached example will give you an idea of the type of response you will need to give – but dont just copy it when it comes to your assessment! Your ability to describe is probably now pretty sound, but the example may help you develop your skill in explaining RISKS AND HAZARDS IN SPORT - EXAMPLE ANSWER.doc

14 OK……are you ready? Right, after the work you have done so far, you should be ready to tackle the first Assessment Activity in this unit.

Have a look at the attached article….it is a summary of the recent injury suffered by Arsenals Eduardo in the match v Birmingham City...\..\..\Website\Newspaper links~articles\Feb 08\Taylor & Eduardo - Feb 08.doc Having read it think about the following questions…..
