I understand that adventurous activities are inherently hazardous and cannot be completely risk free and can include obstacles of a substantial and physically testing nature. Accidents can happen without any contributory negligence from the staff and Learntocave will not be liable for personal injury not arising as a result of its own negligence.
Should the occasion arise, I give my consent to any emergency treatment necessary. I therefore authorise the group leader(s) to sign, on my behalf, any written form of consent required by the hospital authorities should medical treatment (a surgical operation or injection) be deemed necessary, provided that, in the opinion of the Doctor or Surgeon concerned, any delay in obtaining my signature could endanger my/my son’s/my daughter’s health or safety.
Please note that personal accident and loss of belongings are not insured but participants are covered by “Taylor Made Training” insurance in the event of negligence by one of the employees or agents of “Taylor Made Training”.
