Organisations/Schools occasionally ask to see copies of our risk assessments and associated paperwork as part of their event preparation. The HSE, AALA’s role includes inspecting our Risk Assessments and procedures; therefore this inspection has been conducted by a Government agency.
The ‘Risk Assessment’ that organisations/schools may be required to do is not a detailed assessment of each activity, as non-outdoor qualified specialists are not generally experts in these outdoor activities. Instead risk assessment' can simply state that 'the risk of outdoor activities has been controlled by the measure of appointing a verified outdoor provider licensed by AALA – the activities themselves are covered by our own Risk Assessments'. However, if you still wish to see copies of these please let us know.
