Management of Goalposts

There have been several dangerous occurrences and serious accidents recently where a contributory cause has been poor goalpost provision, repair or maintenance. We have updated our guidance to provide a clear and consistent approach to the management of goalposts. The information has been expanded and provides guidance on goalpost standards & types, where they are required, and the responsibility for their erection, maintenance and dismantling.
