Proactive Safety Plan

You are measured by a standard of care, not by a standard of practice.

A standard of practice at your school may be playing floor hockey without eye protection. That is not the standard of care.

The standard of care and your standard of practice should be the same.

The best risk management plan is the teacher who is competent, caring and a vigilant professional who runs a worthwhile program

High Risk Situations

Assessing High and Low Risk applies to situations you encounter as a teacher / coach

Consider the following situations and ask:
– What’s wrong with this picture?
– Red zone / yellow zone?
– What action would you take to correct?
