Injury Reporting & Tracking

All activity entails some risk. Minor injury is to some extent unavoidable. The club mitigates risk for major injury based on facility design, instruction, required use of personal safety equipment (personal flotation device, helmet, throwrope, boat flotation) and safe paddling practices.

In case of an incident, staff and / or qualified club members must assess the situation. Staff with first aid certification may choose to manage minor injuries. First aid supplies are maintained on site. If the injury is serious, call 911, notify parents or guardians and contact club executive

 Critical injuries and major incidents are to be reported by club executive to City of Ottawa Corporate Risk Management at 580-2655 within 24 hours of occurrence.
