Child Protection Co-ordinator
We are grateful to Kirsty Abu-Rajab who is our CPC. If you wish to discuss any matter regarding welfare of club members confidentiallly, her direct email is firstname.lastname@example.org . Kirsty has undertaken Child Protection awareness training, Safe Gym for All training including Safe Recruitment procedures. She is also an active member of the Committee of Glasgow Trampoline Club in this role. We follow the Scottish Gymnastics Child Protection policy
In a thrilling sport such as trampolining, even with very safe and progressive coaching, simple accidents can occur. Sprains and scrapes are common as in any sport. Because of the height and forces involved in trampolining there is the potential for more significant injuries.
The club has a number of qualified first aiders or medically qualified coaches. Scotstoun LC also has nominated first aiders available on contacting reception. The club has a small First Aid box in the cupboard too. We record and report all significant accidents according to the SG and BG policies for this on our standard accident form, which is copied to the parents/individual concerned as well as to our governing body's welfare department.
Health And Safety Officer
Brian has agreed to take up this position on behalf of the committee. The main responsibility is to ensure that the trampolines are safe and maintained appropriately. The club keeps a register of equipment checks, which are done monthly during training seasons.
As all coaches and helpers at GTC are volunteers, Brian, as Head Coach has responsibility for ensuring the training and involvement of all the volunteers is optimised.
