Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines Curricular, Interschool and Intramural Activities

The Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines represent the minimum standards for risk management practice for school boards. They focus the attention of teachers, intramural supervisors and coaches on safe practices, in every activity, in order to minimize the element of risk.

The Safety Guidelines are divided into Elementary and Secondary levels, each containing three separate modules:

  • Curricular – physical education program
  • Interschool – competitive programs (practices and competitions)
  • Intramurals – physical activity/recreation activities

The Safety Guidelines apply to physical activities that occur on the school site or as part of a school sponsored trip (i.e., day trip, overnight, out of province, or out of country).
