IOSH hands out new kit to rugby team
Posted by Ben Alexander
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has donated a new kit to Sandbach RUFC's under-8s squad.
These tops will allow the team to train more comfortably in the winter months, while the gumshields provided will offer them protection, ahead of their graduation to mini rugby next year.
IOSH Manchester and North West Districts chair Deborah Banton said: "It's a misconception that health and safety professionals want to stamp out any kind of activity where there’s a degree of risk."
Ms Banton described risk as an important part of a child's development, particularly in "full contact" sports such as rugby.
She added that rugby also instils confidence and self-awareness among youngsters.
IOSH's donation follows the news that Ystrad Mynach college has been presented with an award in the Welsh assembly government's Health Standard scheme.
The award praises the college's efficient use of safety measures, suggesting the accolades that can be handed out to firms with efficient safety signage.
