WSRA Insurance Documents
Please find attached details of new WSRA liability policy and personal accident insurance on behalf of the WSRA for 2016/2017 season.
The attached summary of cover also recommends an incident record is kept (see below), and that the assistant to the WSRA be informed of any incident(s) so that the insurance broker can be informed, to ensure the policy is up to date and remains active. The WSRA prides itself on a good safety record over its history and the insurance brokers are quite aware of this when providing renewal quotes.

Records must be kept for at least 3 years. Names and addresses of any possible witnesses should also be recorded.
Current legislation does not specify the format of an accident register but the Accident Book BI 510 obtainable from HMSO is frequently used and is approved by the Information Commissioner for D&A Compliance.
The register must contain the following information relating to all reportable accidents or dangerous occurrences:
Guidance on trailer towing
This guide on trailer towing from British Rowing is essential reading for anybody involved in towing rowing trailers.
