Key Adventures provides experiential development and leisure events including adventurous outdoor activities, often in remote locations. It is the case, that the risk involved in such activities is significantly lower than is often perceived, especially as the media tend to exaggerate the risks and consequences associated with the outdoors
It is the nature of adventurous outdoor activities that the level of risk that is encountered by participants may be higher than they might encounter in everyday life; in particular, minor slips, trips and falls are commonplace and to be expected, as are minor scratches and bruises, and physiological wear and tear caused by the physically demanding activities. We ask all participants to be aware of these heightened risks and to provide such information as they think appropriate to ensure that we provide appropriate support during their activities with Key Adventures.
There are many laws and regulations that govern what we do and how we do it;
some require precise adherence and others require that we gain knowledge and expertise and demonstrate good practice. We take our responsibilities under these laws seriously, and we manage our activities within the bounds of common sense and the context of real life.
The two critical laws that govern our operations are the Health and Safety at Work, etc Act (1974) and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999). These two pieces of legislation lay out the territory whilst a variety of other pieces of legislation govern specific activities or areas of our activity.
As part of our health and safety management procedures, we are required to identify and assess the risks that our operation poses to our personnel, to participants and to any other person who might encounter the activities of our business. This risk assessment process is incorporated into our H&S and Operations Policy.
In all our activities we assess the risk to ourselves, to our clients and to the public; we then put measures in place to maintain the health and wellbeing of all people who come into contact with our activities in the past, present and future.
