We take safety and risk very seriously, and Risk Assess all our activities. Since the beginning of 2023 insurance companies have lobbed team building with skydiving, jet skiing and abseiling (in their wisdom), and require us to get signed liability waivers for some low to medium risk activities, including some Amazing Races, kayaking and even playing beach volleyball. It is becoming standard practice in the industry. Just make sure that your team building provider is insured and has a risk management plan to ensure your people are safe and in good hands!
