Acknowledgement of risk – Activity consent- Medical disclosure form

COVID -19

It should be recognised that ‘Outdoor Revolution’ will take all reasonable steps to prevent the transfer of CV to its staff and customers, there will always be a risk that an infected person visits the site and either through aerosol action or smear infection, transfers the virus to others.

Our customers should be made aware of this and make their own decision given their specific circumstances whether this small residual risk is one they are willing to take. The residual risk should be no greater than in many other public spaces and facilities that are already open or will re-open in the coming months.

Acknowledgement of risk

There will always be some risk involved in any type of type of adventurous activity and indeed the benefits of the activity can be nullified if these rules were removed. ‘Outdoor Revolution’ offers aerial adventures in a controlled risk environment.

‘The risk’ of our activities can be physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding. We consider these risks to be low and reasonable. Our ‘challenge by choice’ approach endeavours to ensure participation in any of the activities is always at the participant’s discretion, with the acknowledgement and acceptance of possible risk of injury, loss, or damage to personal belongings.

Risk management guidelines and participant safety briefs will be actioned during operations by the service provider ‘Outdoor Revolution’ to limit these risks, loss or damage.

The above ‘acknowledgement of risk’ does not absolve ‘Outdoor Revolution’ of its duty of care and other legal responsibilities.

Participants are covered by the company’s insurance in the highly unlikely event of negligence by one of its employees.

‘Personal accident’ and ‘loss or damage’ of belongings is not insured

For all our outdoor activities staff, the relevant training, accredited body and/or national governing body qualifications are held and monitored internally and externally on a periodical basis.
