Physical Activity Safety: Guidelines For Alberta Schools (2008)


The intent of the Safety Guidelines for Physical Activity in Alberta Schools is twofold:

  1. to focus teacher attention on safe instructional practices in order to minimize inherent risk and
  2. to encourage school authorities* to develop policies, and schools to develop plans and procedures, for the safety and security of their students.

These guidelines have also been developed to assist school authorities in their formulation of site-specific safety guidelines for physical activity in Alberta schools. Implementation of safety guidelines should in all cases be preceded by a close review of these guidelines and appropriate modification on the part of each school authority in order to meet the specific requirements and circumstances of their respective school program.
