CRITICAL INCIDENT MANAGEMENT
Critical incidents in sporting situations are typically unpredictable events with the potential to cause major injuries, loss of life, or other catastrophic consequences for athletes, other sports personnel and/or their organisations.
The effective management of such significant occurrences should form part of an organisation’s broader risk management strategy as the management of risk is an integral part of good management practice.
Karting Australia has a Critical Incident Response Chart to assist karting event organisers, Clubs and State Karting Associations cope with the pressures and demands of handling a response to a Critical Incident, and to facilitate the liaison and cooperation between the event organisers, Police, and any other external Emergency Services.
In effect the document is a tool that event organisers, clubs and State Karting Associations can use to manage the situation and the recording needed should a Critical Incident occur.
