Please contact the MDOC Map Librarian, Eddie Speak, to obtain the latest map. Please do not use old maps for planning.
If you need to make any updates to a map, and you have sufficient OCAD skills to do it yourself, you can borrow a club laptop to do it. The spreadsheet below shows available dates. Please contact Eddie or Julie (email ) to book a slot.

Event Safety & Welfare Workshop Handbook

- 2016 Event Safety Workshop - NSL Case Study as an Addendum
This is an unofficial Handbook which sets out much of the content of the Event Safety & Welfare Workshop last run for MDOC by Ian Gilliver on 1 February 2016, and it has been uploaded in response to requests from some club members.
However, please note that the latest versions of the standard Risk Assessment Form and the Accident Report Form should always be downloaded from the BOF website.
Also, please note that the Handbook is not a substitute for attendance at a Safety & Welfare Workshop, which from 1 January 2017 will become a requirement for Organisers, Planners and Controllers of all orienteering events (i.e. Levels A, B, C and D).
