One of the first steps in preparing for the Lasso Safe Certification process in a sport community is the formation of the Lasso Safe Safety Team. Integrated implementation is one of the most important safety strategies and a good safety team will become the key to an integrated, effective, value-creating and ultimately successful Lasso Safe Certified sport community. It is important to include as many of the Safety Team members as may be needed early in the process. This allows for a more seamless flow of information, policies and procedures, and allows for the valuable input of multiple experienced and knowledgeable stakeholders in the community from the onset.
Every community will have a different team formation because every community will have different needs and sometimes multiple roles may be filled by a single team member. The following list includes some of the most common team members that may be included in a Lasso Safe Certified community:
