Organizers of Sporting and Recreational Activities

Posted on:5/15/2012
So far as the organizers of sporting and recreational activities are concerned, they owe a duty to participants in their capacity, not only as organizers, but also as occupiers of the premises or facilities concerned.


 

 

An occupier of premises used for recreation must take reasonable care to ensure that there are no hidden dangers, that any apparatus and equipment is fit to use, that there is adequate supervision and that routine safety checks are carried out.

 

The duty of care includes regular safety checks of any equipment used. Complex or technical equipment should be regularly checked and serviced by the manufacturer. Should a fault have occurred which could not be discovered by a simple safety check, then the manufacturer may be liable to anyone injured using that equipment as they will owe them a duty of care.Varying standards of care are imposed by the law according to the persons concerned. More care would be expected to be taken with a class of inexperienced gymnasts for example, than a group of Olympic gymnasts.

 

Organizers of recreational activities as occupiers of premises are free to modify the duty of care they owe by either an express term in a contract with a user of those premises or they may purport to exclude any such liability by the prominent display of a notice to that effect. However, occupiers cannot exclude all liability for injury, loss or damage occurring to those using their premises.
