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.
