6.3.3 Weights
If weights are to be used as a way of stabilizing a goal, the correct number should be employed and they should be attached to the goal.
COMMENTARY: Weights are a reliable and effective means of stabilizing a goal if the correct amount of weight is used. They can be used on any type of surface. They may be:
— integral to the support frame ground back bar;
— attached or applied to the support frame ground back bar at the time of use or during storage;
— positioned on the ground no more than 50 mm away from the rear of the goal and away from the
players, and attached securely to the rear goal ground support frame by short shackles.
The selection of weights and their mass .should take into account their intended location and means of transport. The number and total quantity of weights required can he very large (as much as 150 kg for a full-sized goal). Moving such weights needs to be undertaken with care and in accordance with health and safety recom mnendations. Depending on the size of individual weights, this may require mechanical aids. protective foot wear, etc. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992(lJ set linz its on the loads which may be lifted in the workplace.
6.3.4 Chain and cable attachments
Whatever method is used to stabilize a goal, any attachment chain or a wire cable between the goal and the weight, anchor, eyebolt or other fixing point should be as short as possible and not allow the back bar to lift more than 50 mm from the ground.
The positions at which the goals are attached to their anchors should be as close as possible to the back corners of the support frame. This avoids loading the back bar (which in many goals is not designed to be a load bearer) and makes the anchor as effective as possible. The use of a single anchoring point near the centre of the back bar should be avoided, even if it is attached by chains or cords to the outer corners of the support frame.
7 Moving goals
COMMENTARY: Experience shows that a goal may be at its most dangerous when it is being moved. Under those circu instances, most types of goal are detached from any anchors, weights, fixing points or sockets and are therefore unstable.
Goals should never be moved without an adequate number of physically fit and capable people who have been fully trained to use proper lifting techniques. A full-sized goal should never be moved using fewer than four adults.
NOTE Guidance notes from the Ilcaith and Safety Executive (such as Getting to grips with manual handling j21). give advice on lifting and moving heavy objects safely.
Manufacturer’s instructions on moving goals should always be followed.
Goals should never be dragged across the ground as this may damage the goal andlor the playing surface. If wheels are fitted to the goal, they should be used correctly, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Wheels should be of a type suitable for the surface across which the goal is to be moved.
Goals fitted with four wheels can easily topple if they are pushed in the wrong direction and should only be moved by pushing the uprights in a backwards direction (see Figure 5).BS 8461-2005 pdf free download.
