Craft and Timing
We reserve the right to alter the type of craft used and the timing of courses depending on local conditions.
Most courses and activities at Norfolketc include one or more adventurous activities. Norfolketc’s staff have, and fully accept, a duty of care to make those activities as safe as is reasonably practical. They are required to adhere to a comprehensive set of safety rules and there is a quality management system to monitor the fact that rules and procedures are adhered to.
However, adventurous activities are inherently hazardous and cannot be completely risk free however hard we try.
Accidents can happen without any contributory negligence from the centre or its staff.
