Risk Assessment

Your Safety is of Critical Importance at Team Bonding

1.  Insurance:

Team Bonding – is fully insured for all our activities, with $20 million (per occurrence) public liability insurance.

Our legal advice has indicated that should any injuries occur in the natural course of the event, your group are covered by their existing Workcover workers compensation provisions.

2. Safety

Safety of participants is of paramount importance at Team Bonding events, we take the following approach to ensure everyone is safe and gets the maximum enjoyment from our events.

For events such as the Amazing Race we are unable to carry extra water, sun hats or rain ponchos so we ask that participants bring water and come prepared for either sun or rain, unfortunately. Before leaving we check that anyone who may require medication* has it with them. (*eg asthma, diabetes, epi-pen, epilepsy)

3. Fitness:

The race is not especially physically challenging and has been enjoyed by people of all ages, sizes and fitness levels. Anyone with concerns should know that at least an hour of walking is involved, though there are opportunities to sit down at various checkpoints. We do time the race which encourages some teams to move quite quickly, if this is of concern we can run the race without timing the teams to avoid any incentive to move too fast.

4. First Aid:

Our staff have compact first aid kits, including sunscreen, band aids, aspirin, electrolytes and at least 2 bottles of water. All staff carry mobile phones and all the courses are accessible by emergency services.

5. Briefing:

During the group briefing, we ask teams to complete the event at a comfortable pace and not to over exert, this point is re-iterated at the individual team briefings. In most of our events we make it a rule for teams to stay together at all times and take care of each other.

6. Contact Numbers:

All checkpoints are staffed and teams have a mobile number for any problems that arise. Before heading off, our staff ask for a contact number for each team.

7. Psychological Comfort:

Participants are always given a choice regarding tasks and no one is forced to do anything they may be uncomfortable with.

8. Special Needs:

For the Amazing Race, if the group has some less active or injured people we can take them to a half way point or send them directly to the finish point. There are some opportunities to rest in the shade throughout the race.
