Health & Safety

The Nelson Yacht Club’s Health and Safety Plan incorporates Risk Assessments and Standard Operating Procedures to ensure as far as reasonably practicable the health and safety of the club’s members, employees, contractors, volunteers, and visitors.

The plan and policies are currently undergoing a review and will be updated shortly, along with making them available on the club website, and more accessible in the Penguin’s Nest at the club.
