Our Commitment to Safety

All our Guides are British Canoe Union Level 1 Coaches, First Aid trained and CRB checked.

Risk assessments are carried out on all our Guided Tours on a regular basis and daily risk assessments are made due to weather and river conditions.

A safety briefing is mandatory at the start of every tour and full instruction will be provided to ensure the safety of each individual at all times.

All clothing provided by CKT Ltd (i.e buoyancy aids) are checked on a daily basis and will be fitted per individual.

All safety equipment is checked before each tour commences.

We have a full Health and Safety document which is updated on a regular basis and can be viewed at any time with notice.

We have full public liability insurance, certificate available for view.

Any serious medical conditions MUST be disclosed PRIOR to the tour commencing.

We are dog lovers but due to the nature of the Tour we feel dogs may be a safety issue and therefore are NOT PERMITTED on any Tour.
