Cycling Australia through their National Risk Management Project have provided the following documents to assist clubs in conducting safe road races. These documents have been slightly tailored to Tasmanian conditions.

National Risk Register

The National Risk Register is a documentation of the risks associated with all levels of events, their severity and the treatment actions to be taken. The Risk Register is a valuable resource for ensuring that risk treatment strategies and plans are incorporated into event management practices. It can be utilized by event organisers as an event planning checklist and as a guide to developing event specific Risk Management Plans. It is a reference for administrators and officials when reviewing event policies and procedures. The Risk Register will require a process of continual review and updating in response to new issues that are identified or may arise.
