THE NEED FOR QUALITY INSTRUCTION WHEN CLIMBING....Below is a story one of our customers sent us - which appeared in "Safety Management" a little while ago. It outlines what happened when a climbing tutor elsewhere ( n.b. NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH US ! ) took out a group of people & went climbiing. This freshly qualified instructor's accident illustrates the need for crystal clear instructions, cross checking of pupils' undertsanding and constant vigilence and safety management when undertaking any potential hazardous activities such as top roping. Rock climbing at Peak Activities Ltd. over the past 29 years has been VERY SAFE we need to add !
We extend our deepest sympathy to the persons involved in and affected by this and any similar avoidable accidents caused by "silly mistakes". Hopefully by drawing attention to the possibility of such accidents arising from poor safety briefings we can help avoid similar trajegies occurring again. We hope this article extract answers the question on our climbing page about why our company is a tad more expensive than some other organisations in and around the Peak District National Park. You tend to get exactly what you pay for in this life and if you are planning events on behalf of a company you really do need to check that the people you are trusting with your safey are really up to scratch and their work is constantly being checked and improved through a process of professional cross-check and continuous improvement.
