In the day to day running of the business, the person with responsibility for health and safety issues, the safety officer.
Guests expect high standards of safety. In the nature of the outdoor activities which make up the majority of our work, there is an implied element of risk. We ensure this risk is reduced as far as possible.?
We have an excellent safety record and believe that it is vital we maintain this record and appreciate suggestions for improvements
Simply, we believe happy, satisfied customers are the essence of our organisation, Our first priority is the health and safety of all our guests.
Brief features of our own safety management plan are detailed below:
As a responsible outdoor activity provider we:
Monitor the performance of all employees by means of senior staff accompanying and by written and verbal course evaluations completed by guests.
Ensure staff are trained in first aid and that they understand the procedures in the event of an emergency.
Encourage constructive advice and comments from customers.
Carry out a risk assessment of each activity.
Check equipment and record usage of key safety items.
Understand the capabilities of the rescue services.
We recognise that differences between guests mean that what is safe for one group, or category, is not necessarily safe for another. Although categorising of guests tends towards stereotyping which is to be avoided as far as possible, we feel this is a step towards improving safety because it aids clear communication of the skill level and personal qualities of individuals.
