Safety

Participants on field trips visit a number of outcrops along the Heritage Coast of South Wales that provide a range of hazards and associated risks.

To minimise the chance of injury South Wales GeoTours has adopted the policies for attending fieldwork developed by The Geological Society of London and The Geologists Association. A Risk Assessment of each locality has been made and recommendations made to minimise the chance of injury have been made.

Each person attending the field meeting does so on the understanding that he/she attends at his/her own risk. South Wales GeoTours is covered by Public Liability cover for field and indoor meetings, but Personal Accident and Personal Liability cover remain the responsibility and personal choice of the participant.
