How can we ensure that this new activity is delivered safely?
Clubs have a duty to manage club premises/activities to be as safe as necessary, rather than as safe as possible, with reasonable controls being implemented to reduce those risks that cannot reasonably be eliminated to a level that is justifiable and tolerable. This does not mean that the probability of harm must be reduced to zero – the only sure way to eliminate all risks associated with an activity is to eliminate the activity and no one is suggesting that.
