SAFETY INFORMATION

Chris Hughes Multi Activity Services Limited (CHMAS) has been trading since 2006 and has a good safety record. This isn't just through luck but through a systematic approach to safety, which is achieved by:
  • Having a Health & Safety Policy and Risk Assessments for our business and
    reviewing these regularly;
  • Only using appropriately qualified and experienced staff;
  • Adhering to current good practice;
  • Operating in small groups and where appropriate at or below the levels
    recommended by the National Governing Bodies; and
  • Running activities in a challenge by choice environment.

Health & Safety Policy/Risk Assessments

CHMAS has a Health & Safety Policy, which sets out amongst other things our staff induction process, operational and emergency procedures, risk assessments as well as defining specific responsibilities for safety. In addition, all our activities have a risk assessment. These documents are reviewed regularly so that any lessons learnt or updated good practice can be incorporated.

While accepting that safety is a joint responsibility between clients, instructors and the company directors, Mr Chris Hughes (Director) has ultimate responsibility for health & safety.
