Safety and welfare
It's very important that we stay safe, healthy and happy while we row the Tideway and get our medals. Among other things, this means ensuring that the weather conditions for our outings are right but also that all our members are well-educated on the rules of the river. It includes attendance at appropriate training sessions, safety-checking our equipment as well as fulfilling safety requirements set by UCL Union. In addition, our safety and welfare officer Dawid Akala is also responsible for running RUMSBC Education, which includes tutorials and education events for our members. Sharing our knowledge this way is just another way in which we can be as much of a team off-water as we are on it. Watch this space for information on upcoming events in safety and welfare.
