The Rugby League Ground Safety Officers' Association was first established in April 1997 to provide a suitable forum to debate matters of mutual concern, to facilitate the sharing of ideas and practices, to discuss the training requirements of safety officers and stewards, to establish common practice in the area of ground safety procedures and to formulate a consensus which might be applied to negotiations with all relevant authorities.


The objectives of the Rugby League Ground Safety Officers Association are:
  • To seek to improve safety at professional rugby league grounds within the UK.
  • To improve performance and training of stewards.
  • To liaise with Local and Central government on issues affecting Rugby League clubs and The Rugby Football League.
  • To continually develop the Rugby League safety officers professional skills and expertise.
  • To support members and their organisations to achieve common safety standards.
