Our fitness risk management system

Our fitness risk management system ensures that you can provide a safe environment for members and visitors to take part in different kinds of fitness activities.

Our risk management system meets legal minimum standards to keep you, your members and visitors safe. The system also helps protect the MS Society financially - and you from personal liability.

Fitness activities during COVID

If your group is not involved in the pilot, all face-to-face activities must remain suspended.

If you are restarting or starting a new fitness activity (exercise, therapy or complimentary therapy) during COVID-19 you will now need to complete a Service Level Agreement.

  1. Service level agreements

Contact Community Networks for details


Please be aware the documentation laid out below is NOT IN USE AT THIS TIME. The Community Networks team will inform you when these activities can resume.

Risk assessments

The purpose of risk assessment is to:

  • show all the foreseeable risks that could be found in a particular situation
  • determine the level of risk
  • develop control measures that can be put in place to avoid these risks

Your group must carry out risk assessments for all fitness activities you run.
