The Task: Make Scouting safe and sound by learn more safety procedures in Scouting and committing to a culture of safety in your team.
When you make safety part of your Team’s culture by your example, safety awareness will be part of every thing you do; decisions of your Scouts, as well as, your decisions as Coach will influence safety. Rules count, where the rules are neglected, liability increases, so make safety first.
When the video is complete, open this outline explaining the “sandwich principle” with emphasis on the importance of qualified supervision and discipline (Scouting Safety…Begins With Leadership).
The real goal of Day 11 is to get you started on one of the many courses, certifications and programs BSA offers. As examples, these are some of the things we will cover in our Day Books:
- Safety Begins with Leadership
- Guide to Safe Scouting
- Scouting Safety
- Chemical Fuel and Equipment Policies
- Safe Swim Defense
- Safety Afloat
- Chain Saw Safety Training
- BSA Bike Safety Guidelines
But there are so many other subjects to cover (to see the list click here), that you have to pace yourself to get it all done, but these Day Books will get you there.
How are you going to make safety part of your Team’s culture?
