Inspection and Safety Reviews
The Club will operate a system whereby all systems and equipment used as part of the safety function are subject to continuous inspection and test. The frequency or inspections and tests will not be less than that advised by equipment manufactures or statutory requirements. Competent persons will be used to carry out such inspection or tests. The result of all inspections and tests will be recorded.
The result of all inspections, tests, ongoing safety reporting and recording systems which make up the risk analysis, structural, mechanical and electrical surveys will form part of the annual policy review. The certificates will be available for inspection.
With the Public: The Club will endeavour to maintain communications with the public/spectators through information on the Club Website, in Match Programmes; Club publications; public address system; encouragement of stewards in customer care and feedback from all sources both within and outside the Club.
With Staff: The Club will encourage two-way communication with staff on all safety related matters. Staff will be encouraged to report all safety related issues through the chain of command at any time and a record will be made of all such comments.
With Other Agencies: When deemed necessary, the Club will provide facilities for both pre and post-match briefings between the Club and emergency or other external services. The Club will endeavour to provide representation at the appropriate level for all meetings with such services. The Club will attend meetings with the Safety Advisor Group and liaise with other agencies through joint exercises, planning and exchange of information.
The Club will endeavour at all times to minimise the danger and effect of fire. This will be achieved by reviewing the fire risk assessment (FRA) regularly to identify all potential risks from fire, in order to remove or reduce the risk to an acceptable level. All changes to the FRA will be notified to Tayside Fire Brigade.
A No Smoking policy will be enforced vigorously throughout the stadium. The Club will maintain a policy of acting upon the advice of the Fire Authorities given from time to time and employing specific fire stewards, maintaining all fire safety systems in accordance with the FRA, as well as keeping litter to a minimum.
First Aid/Medical Provision
The Club will ensure the provision of reasonable medical, ambulance and first aid cover at all events. The Club will employ a crowd doctor, when appropriate, who will be trained and competent to deal with emergencies at the ground. The Club will engage ambulance services at a level appropriate to current and future guidance. This is currently arranged with the Scottish Ambulance Service.
The Club will provide facilities for the use of First Aid personnel and engage an appropriate number of qualified officers for each event.
Ground Management Contingency Plans
The Club will take all reasonable steps to identify all possible types of emergency or system failure that could occur at the ground while spectators are in the ground and prepare contingency plans to deal with such incidents. Where such incidents could lead to a major incident, the Club will brief the emergency services and work with them to ensure that these plans are compatible with the major incident plans of those organisations. The Club produced its Contingency Plans and will test their effectiveness on a regular basis.
