All participants on Compassworks courses should note that participation in any outdoor
activity has a degree of risk involved. Participants are reminded that they have
a duty of care to all other participants and to all employees of Compassworks. In
the interest of safety for all participants, the decisions of any leader employed
by Compassworks is final, we reserve the right to exclude any participant who we
feel may be a danger to themselves and/or others. Should a leader take such action,
that person would not be entitled to any refund.
All Compassworks events are ‘risk assessed’ so that we reduce the amount of risk
to participants to an acceptable standard. The nature of the ground and weather
conditions experienced on Dartmoor are changeable and as such participants should
be aware of the inherent risk of injury which in extreme cases may prove fatal when
operating on high moorland. The majority of events that Compassworks run do not
involve strenuous exercise but should you need more information in this regard please
contact us directly.
All accidents must be reported as soon as they occur, no matter how minor, in order
that they can be adequately documented. In all cases, all accidents must be reported
within 1 calendar month of their occurrence, even if the final extent of the injury
is not known. Compassworks will not accept liability for accidents reported to us
outside of this time limit.
Compassworks courses involve outdoor work, sometimes in static locations for prolonged
periods, on semi-rough open moorland in variable weather conditions. Please ensure
that you bring, as a minimum, the following items of clothing and equipment:
· Small Rucksack
· Waterproof jacket and trousers
· Hat and gloves
· Walking boots
· Water container and flask
· Spare warm clothing
Please note that jeans and trainers are not acceptable for use on outdoor Compassworks
events and courses and you may be excluded from taking part in any outdoor activity
if you do wear unacceptable clothing.
