There are a number of types of ‘risk’ associated with Rotary’s activities, some of which are:

Ø  The risk that Rotary might injure someone, damage property, or incur a liability through actual or perceived negligence (lack of due care) on the part of a Rotary Club, Rotary District or Rotary organisation or personal injury or sickness for one or more of its members whilst on Rotary duty either in the home country or overseas.

Ø  The risk of damage to Rotary or Rotarian’s property.

Whilst there is a responsibility to control and properly manage all forms of risk to achieve a successful outcome, this paper is primarily concerned with ‘Public Liability’, personal injury to Rotarians and other Rotary participants while on Rotary duties, and damage to Rotary and Rotarian’s property.
