Club Policies

Member Protection Policy

CRSC seeks to provide a safe environment for all members and visitors.  To this end we have a very clear Member Protection Policy that outlines our processes for providing an inclusive harassment free community club.

The purpose of the CRSC Member Protection Policy (MPP) is to maintain responsible and appropriate behaviour by members and other participants in the Club. It outlines our commitment to a person’s right to be treated with respect and dignity and to be safe and protected from discrimination, harassment and abuse. The MPP informs everyone involved in our club of his or her legal and ethical rights and responsibilities and the standards of behaviour that are expected of them. It also covers the care and protection of children participating in our club’s activities. The Club has appointed a Member Protection Information Officer to facilitate the achievement of these aims.

Standard Operating Guidelines

These Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs) are intended to complement the Risk Management Policy and should be read in conjunction with it. The SOGs are posted on the Club’s  website and a hard copy is available in the green book by the boat ramp in the Club House. Members should be notified by email whenever a new SOG is posted and urged to read and understand it.

The objectives of the Standard Operating Guidelines are:

  • to help ensure the safety of CRSC members while operating the Club's critical equipment
  • to help ensure the Club's critical equipment is operated correctly, to avoid damage and to maintain its fitness for purpose

This will be achieved by:

  • defining who is authorised to operate the CRSC's critical equipment
  • describing the principal elements of correct operation of this equipment
  • displaying warning and instruction notices on or near the equipment, where appropriate
  • helping to ensure that those members authorised to operate the equipment are properly trained to do so
