Safety Index

Because of the unique nature of Oxford collegiate rowing - namely that a large number of inexperienced people take to a very cramped river - it is paramount that we operate in as safe an environemt as reasonable. This page outlines steps that clubs, captains, coaches and individuals should be taking; these will either mirror RowSafe, or exceed them, due to our circumstances.

Swim tests

As of Trinity Term 2011, new swim-test guidelines are in operation. These will, in due course, be published as Appendix H to the constitution.

Please see this page for more details.
