Hot Weather Policy
15 March 18: Extract of Notice from MFA received:
With the temperatures expected to rise this weekend, we thought it prudent to send a reminder of FNSW Heat Policy (see attached, and refer to the links provided in the policy document for further prudent information).
In summary, the policy states:
RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURES FOR CANCELLATION OF GAMES & TRAINING and other events including trial games, selection trials, clinics or any physical activities:
Cancel or postpone events involving Adults at ambient temperatures of 37°C or above
Cancel or postpone events involving Children at ambient temperatures of 32°C or above
These are the maximum cancellation temperatures. Cancellation of games, training or events at lower temperatures may be necessary depending on factors such as: humidity; local conditions including radiant heat from synthetic surfaces and lack of ventilation at indoor centres; player wellbeing; and player acclimatisation. For the purpose of this policy a child is a person aged up to and including 16 years of age. Note that young children are especially at risk in the heat and should not be forced to continue playing or training if they appear distressed or complain about feeling unwell.
We all have a duty of care in relation to the heat, and we need to make every effort to ensure the safety and well-being of our players, officials and committees etc. - personal liability claims could be an issue if it is found that we have not undertaken prudent steps to follow the heat policy guidelines and recommendations in the event of a major heat related death or major incident.
Your Club supports the Heat Policy and will enforce it if required at any time.
