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.
