Members services


The RCA Safety Group is formed of racecourse representatives with specialist knowledge and experience of Health and Safety, and operational roles on racecourses. Working with specialist advisers where necessary, the Group assists the RCA Executive in sharing best practice and providing advice to racecourses on issues such as risk assessment, compliance with national licensing requirements, parade ring safety, stewarding and policing arrangements.

Furthermore, the Group assists in developing responses on behalf of racecourses to relevant sporting, safety and government consultations, such as the Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds.
