Delivering exercise outdoors presents health and safety considerations way beyond those that occur with indoor classes. It’s not just busy roads or slippery paths but everything from land ownership & emergency vehicle access through to dog bites and sunstroke.This should not be a barrier to providing what the public want though and this workshop will highlight what should be included in risk assessment and how to manage incidents outdoors. For a detailed look at what Instructors should carry, how to manage groups when things go wrong and even coping with the weather – this workshop is a must!
NEW SAFETY & RISK ASSESSMENT TOOLS
Come and find out more and see our NEW on line risk assessment tool and our new safety bracelet scheme which means your clients can log all of their medical and next of kin infomation onto a central server which can be immediately accessed by emergency services in the case of accident or incident.
NEW CODE OF PRACTICE
Now that outdoor exercise is on the rise we also need to ensure that the public attracted to exercise in parks and green spaces are able to access the same professionalism and standards as in Leisure Centres and Health Clubs. THE FITNESS INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION have been working to develop an OUTDOOR CODE OF PRACTICE which will help to make sure those delivering bootcamps, jogging clubs and walking groups etc. are adequately qualified, insured and SAFE! NWUK are at the forefront of this standard and our Instructors are ideally placed to show how things should be done so make sure you remain informed and up to date.
This lively, infomative session will also include the demonstration of some outdoor risk scenarios and how to manage them. BOOK NOW to make sure you do not miss out.
