COVID-19 Liaison Officer
If you are a COVID-19 Liaison Officer, you need to exercise ‘due diligence’ to ensure that your club members comply with their duties and obligations
You must ensure that your club has processes and procedures in place to manage risks arising from COVID-19. You also need to ensure those processes and procedures are being followed.
Relevant processes and procedures include:
▪ Filling out risk assessment templates for activities. Where you have risk assessments in place, review them to ensure they are being filled out correctly and are up to date.
▪ Having procedures for consulting with club members
▪ Developing a process for how the club will respond if there is a case of COVID-19 within your club
