In order to provide an environment conducive to physical activity, the Ministry has evaluated the risk of injury caused by hockey nets tipping forward on players. This document presents the safety measures to be taken according to the types of nets used.
It is important to keep in mind that these measures are intended only for public outdoor playing surfaces, particularly outdoor skating rinks. They do not apply to residential activities or indoor playing surfaces such as gymnasiums and arenas, which often have a different environment and different equipment and supervision requirements. The recommendations contained in this document can serve, however, as a general reference for indoor playing surfaces.
