|Assignment Brief: | |The aim of this unit is to introduce you to risks and hazards in sport and active leisure. You will learn that any person who participates | |in sport or active leisure is at risk of sustaining an injury. This is why it is important that any person wishing to pursue a career in | |sport or active leisure has a good grasp of health and safety and is able to respond appropriately to emergency situations. | |You will learn that the risk of a person sustaining an injury can be substantially reduced if the leader and participants are aware of the | |hazards around them and the ways in which these hazards can be eliminated or minimised. The unit will introduce you to the concept of | |hazards and the ways in which it is possible to protect oneself and others. | | | |Learning outcomes: | |1 Know how to maintain the safety of people involved in sport and active leisure | |2 Know how to reduce risks to people involved in sport and active leisure | |3 Be able to respond appropriately to given, simulated emergency situations |
