Sport Safety and Assurance

HQ ASCB  has undergone significant transformation and is continually adapting to anticipate existing and potentially new threats to safety in sport. The ASCB now employs a Sports Safety and Assurance Officer within the HQ. His main role is:

`…to provide reassurance to the ASCB on the compliance by Army Sport Associations and Unions with issued policy, understanding existing policy, making recommendations for improvement and conduct a series of assurance advisory visits…`

It was emphasised that DASCB’s intent was not to create excessive amounts of work for those involved in running sport, it advocated the requirement to conduct a simple review of sport delivery using good judgment and SME knowledge; producing sufficient auditable records to help ensure our Service personnel and those involved in organising and competing in sport are properly protected. This is an independently programmed role which is now well in to its second year of audits and visits reporting directly to DASCB; updating the ASCB Board Members as and when necessary and in accordance with the ASCB Battle Rhythm.
