Accident and injury
OENW have a robust Health and Safety policy in place and all activities are thoroughly risk assessed, however, minor bumps and bruises do occasionally occur.
It should be recognised by all participants that there is always a minor risk of accidents and injury associated with Outdoor and Adventurous activities, and that OENW will not be held liable for such.
It should be accepted that Outdoor and Adventurous activities can be influenced by the weather conditions on the day.
If, on the day of your booking, the conditions make it inappropriate to run your activity of choice, then an alternative activity will be offered. This will be discussed with you or your staff on the day.
In extreme situations where the conditions present a risk of harm to any participant then the instructor in charge of the activity has the overall authority to change / cancel the activity.
During the activity
The instructor running the activity has a duty of care towards all participants. On any and all matters relating to the Health and Safety of participants, their instructions and decisions must be followed.
The instructor on the day (supported by OENW senior staff) has the authority to cancel any activity or remove one or more participants from the activity if their behaviour causes a risk of harm to themselves or others.
We will on occasion take photographs of our activities which will occasionally be used for marketing purposes. Please let us know if you would prefer us not to take / use photos.
