If I use a free attendance register, are they safe?
As you can see on the BE register, there is some very important personal info to be added to these registers. Therefore, the privacy and security of all the people that are added to a register is very important. So, the question is, who gets to see it?
Whilst in most cases it’s important that all coaching staff and helpers have access to these class registers, it’s equally as important to make sure they are kept safe. Not just in the class or session itself, but also before and after. Where are they kept? How are they transferred from one coach to another (a common problem if different staff take the same classes on rotation for example)?
How secure is an A4 ring binder or box folder? And how easy is it for someone with dubious intention to flick to one of the attendance registers and take a sneaky photo of it on their phone? May seem a bit extreme, but this is exactly the kind of thing that paedophiles will do to get the info they need.
