Statement of Risk

Walk Hay places safety as a top priority. Walking involves some risks for those taking part and we aim to keep these risks as low as possible. The chances of a serious injury are extremely low, but the chance of minor injuries (bruises, bumps and, less likely, minor fractures) are a possible result of taking part. Our safety record is outstanding. However, we will continue to ensure diligence and minimise actual dangers by:

  • Carrying out a careful assessment of all risks before commencing the walk

  • Giving clear safety instructions to everyone participating

  • Ensuring the walk is within the capabilities of the participants

  • Asking participants to supply any medical conditions or information

We expect participants to co-operate with me to ensure the safety of all participants, by following instructions and answering questions honestly.

Covid 19

By signing the medical/Consent form, you agree that:

  • If you are supposed to be self-isolating following Government Guidelines, you should not attend your walk

  • You have not come into contact with anyone suspected of having COVID-19. If you have, you will need to self-isolate and cancel your place

  • You have no symptoms of COVID-19. Government Guidance on this can found here

  • You have not returned from overseas in the last 14 days.

  • You have not been asked to self isolate by test and trace in the last 14 days

  • You are from a household that has been free from COVID-19 for the last 21 days.

  • You understand that attending this walk puts you at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 than staying at home.

If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of attending a walk, you will inform us so that we can inform others, as required.

Consent

By signing the medical/Consent form, you agree that:

I understand that I will take part in the walk outlined on the walk information page at my own risk and accept that no responsibility for accidents or injuries or loss or damage to personal property rests with the walk leader, unless proven to be caused by their negligence. I declare that to the best of my knowledge I am competent and medically fit to participate in the walk as part of a group. I agree that medical treatment will be given if necessary and in case of emergency. I agree to the statements above relating to COVID-19
