Bridge Alarms

The Club's Loss Prevention department, in conjunction with Professor Polly Dalton at Royal Holloway, University of London, has produced the following survey to determine whether Bridge Equipment Alarms affect the way in which watch keepers perform their duties. The data collected will be used to identify what further guidance should be developed to assist Members in their operations. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the research, please email Carri Woodburn, 

If you decide to take part, you will be asked to complete around 15 online survey questions. The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete.

You are free to leave out any questions you prefer not to answer, without giving a reason. At the end of the survey, we will also ask you to confirm once more that you are happy for your responses to be used. You have the right to withdraw from the study at any time up to that point. However, once you have confirmed your agreement and your responses are submitted to the system, they will become anonymous, so we will not be able to remove them from the database at a later time. 

Your data will be anonymous and entered into an electronic database, which will be accessible to the team who are working on this project. This anonymised data may later be used by other researchers and/or deposited without identifying information in data sharing archives.

Please feel free to ask any questions using the email address above before you agree to participate. This study is run under the jurisdiction of the Research Ethics Committee at Royal Holloway, University of London.
