Health and Safety

The well-being of every participant in our programs is paramount. While working in and around water provides a robust learning context for our students, health and safety policies and procedures must be of the highest standard. The policies and procedures employed in delivery of our programs is of such a standard, aligning with the most recent regulations of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and the Health and Safety at Work (Adventure Activities) Regulations 2016, and subject to in-depth and on-going evaluation.

The specific Health and Safety policy that we use for our Healthy Rivers, Living Sea programs has been produced by the Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust for its Experiencing Marine Reserves and Whitebait Connection projects. As facilitators for the Trust's activities in our region (including the provision of workshops and community outreach), we have undergone appropriate training and fulfil the rigorous requirements of the Health and Safety Policy.
