Forest Bushcraft Health and Safety

Instructor Responsibility

Instructors in charge are specifically invested with the responsibility for maintaining appropriate standards of health, safety and welfare. Instructors in charge will endeavour to ensure that appropriate health, safety and welfare advice is provided and complied with.

Participant Responsibility

It is vital to emphasize that the participants health, safety and welfare during a course will not be the sole responsibility of the Instructor in charge. Participants have a responsibility for their own health, safety and welfare. Importantly, participants must adhere to all instructions given by the Instructor in charge. Instructors will always be empowered, if participants fail to comply due to:

  • Behaviour not conducive to the activity or other participants
  • Behaviour that is likely to cause injury to themselves, other participants or Instructors or damage to equipment or property.
  • To arrange for that participant to a) leave the activity, b) modify the activity or c) cancel the activity

Parent / Guardian Responsibility

There is a responsibility placed on parents/guardians to ensure that as far as is reasonably practicable, participants take responsibility as aforementioned. All our courses are run by experienced and fully qualified instructors. Safety is adhered to at all times, and appropriate safety equipment supplied for each course

Rock Climbing and Abseiling

At a minimum, all these sessions are led by an Instructor with a Single Pitch Supervisor Award.
