Covid-19

 

We have been working hard to make sure that we comply with government guidelines and can create the safest environment possible for you and your group as well as our staff team.

Our Staff

·       We will ensure every team member undergoes comprehensive training in washing hands, cleaning, hygiene, social distancing and the use of PPE

·       Staff will wash hands before and after activities and sanitise between tasks where possible

·       We will ensure social distancing rules are adhered to and on any occasions when the distance needs to be reduced, such as when administering first aid, a face covering and gloves will be worn

·       We will split staff into dedicated work teams and keep the number of members interacting with others as low as possible

·       Staff will not attend work if they, a close family member or contact displays Covid-19 symptoms

·       PPE will be issued and used in accordance with latest government recommendations, including instruction on safe disposal after use

Activities

Risk

 

The activities Live4Adventure provide are hazardous by their nature and it is important that you must accept there is a certain element of risk with your chosen course. For example the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) Participation Statement says that: The BMC recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions. All of our activities are risk assessed and continually reviewed with appropriate safety measures in place to assist in ensuring your wellbeing. All staff are trained and inducted in to company policies and procedures and follow current good practice and company operating procedures.

Parents and guardians must recognise there is a degree of risk in our activities before signing the declaration form for children under the age of 18 years.

 

Operating Procedures

 

Live4Adventure's Operating Procedures are important guidelines for our staff to follow to ensure the safe conduct of activity sessions. They are based on generic and site specific risk assessments taken from wide consultation with technical experts and staff. Our Operating Procedures are regarded as guidelines for qualified and experienced staff to use as a basis for their own dynamic risk assessment before and during the activity. Live4Adventure staff will ensure that they operate within their own ability, experience and equipment to run safe, 

challenging activities.

 

Insurance

 

Live4Adventure hold public liability insurance for £5 million with Activities Industry Mutual. We do, however, recommend that all participants take out their own suitable insurance and ensure that you are covered for taking part in adventurous activities.

 

Your Suitability For a Course

 

To ensure everyone's safety as far as possible, Live4Adventure reserves the right to transfer participants to other activities if we believe they are likely to put themselves or others at unacceptable risk. It is very important that you choose the right course to suit your experience, abilities and physical fitness. If you have any doubts about your suitability for a course, please call us. Also, if you have any health condition that you think may be relevant, please let us know, in confidence, either by letter or on the booking form.
