Usrowing Safety Guidelines
The safety committee of the United States Rowing Association was formed in 1987 to serve as an advisory group to the organization in the area of safety. Their governing document is not meant as an all-inclusive treatment of rowing safety, as all possible situations and types of rowing could not be covered in such a brief forum. The guidelines in their governing document are meant to serve as an outline for your own safety program. Their Safety Committee welcomes your questions and comments.
