QBE Risk Management Track Grant Scheme Now Accepting Applications
To assist in improving the professionalism of our sport and the development of safer speedway venues across Australia, QBE in conjunction with the Speedway Australia Public Liability Scheme are once again giving the chance for a limited number of Speedway Australia Insured Tracks to receive a financial grant.
QBE Insurance has a very strong commitment to assisting Speedway Australia and the sport of speedway in improving the standard of venues around the country.
Over the past several seasons, QBE has increased its commitment to the Risk Management Track Grant Scheme from $15,000 to $30,000.
In response to Speedway Australia’s continuing emphasis on safety and risk management, QBE has agreed to increase their commitment once again, offering a total of $50,000 in grant funds for the scheme in 2011/12.
This is an opportunity for clubs and track promoters to submit a grant application for up to $5,000, outlining how it wishes to improve the safety and risk management standards of its venue.
Consideration will be given to track improvements such as enhancing safety fences, improving the safety of spectator areas, safety signage, flood lighting, installation of racing lights, upgrading fire safety equipment and other risk management improvements.
Projects for which grants are being requested must be measurable and must directly relate to risk management improvements of your speedway venue.
Your grant application must address:
- The specific purpose of the project
- The total cost of materials for the project (quotations and supplier details)
- The benefits of the project
- The start/end dates of the project
Applications for Speedway Australia QBE Risk Management Track Grants must be received at Speedway Australia Head Office before close of business Friday March 30 2012.
For information regarding how to submit your track’s Risk Management Track Grant application, please contact Risk Management Officer Shane Collins at Speedway Australia via firstname.lastname@example.org or on (08) 8139 0777.
