Create a Safe Environment for
Adults at Risk
Software consultancy Globocol has created an
incident reporting and case management software
application for safeguarding in sport.
Designed for organisation leaders and
safeguarding officers in clubs, associations, federations and governing bodies.
What Happens When Things Go Wrong?
Incidents or adverse events due to actions (or lack of actions) that have led to harm and which could have been preventable
Near Misses whereby a situation which could have placed an individual at risk was avoided by chance or purpose.
Risks whereby you identify factors in your organisation that could lead to a safeguarding incident, and to put an action plan in place to mitigate or eliminate the risk.
Any of these could occur in your sport or location. Globocol's safeguarding sport software helps you to recognise what you are dealing with and how to respond.
You may need to take corrective action to minimise the effects of the issue or preventative action to stop similar issues arising in the future.
Safeguarding subscribers also have access to Globocol's Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in Sport software application.
A system of record is an essential tool for all sporting organisations.
Why Do Things Go Wrong?
Failings in supervision can occur for one, or many, reasons: lack of knowledge; poor communication; not sharing information; stress; fatigue; distraction; poor training.
To help professionals and volunteers in all sports, Globocol has designed a bespoke reporting application for those in sport who have a duty of care towards children or vulnerable adults.

Children involved in sport should always be protected from harm.
This places an obligation on those in charge. There is a statutory duty to be alert to any potential risks and have adequate systems in place if things go wrong.
Why Should “Near Misses” Be Reported?
A system of record is essential to promote good practice
Reduce risks for all participants by not waiting for harm to occur
Trigger improvements in safeguarding processes or gaps in training
Alert others to possible vulnerabilities and/or gaps in training
Globocol’s Safeguarding Sport Software provides a place to record the facts of an Incident, Near Miss or Risk. Creating a record gives visibility to the issue and kicks off a process of investigation and review.
The investigation and review stages in turn generate a record of preventative and corrective actions. The goal is to ensure that you reduce the risk of anything similar happening again.
