World Archery / Archery Australia Rules
To see that a course is safe is the most important purpose of any inspection. Any accident caused by a lack of basic safety precautions cannot be tolerated and all potential hazards are to be rectified prior to the tournament. For this reason, it is important that all Judges participate in the inspection as a group. We have the following recommendations for safety inspections:
Judges must be concerned with safety aspects at all times during a competition. If, in the opinion of the Judge, an athlete is using a technique to draw back the string which could allow the arrow, if accidentally released, to fly beyond a safety zone or safety arrangements (overshoot area, net wall etc;), the athlete must be advised to change her/his technique.
