Health & Safety

A countryside visit provides many excellent opportunities for students. Although there are some potential hazards in the outdoors these are generally very small and should not detract from the enjoyment of a visit. All of our activities are risk assessed and we encourage students to be a part of the risk management process, identifying hazards and appropriate behaviour as a group before an activity commences.

The Crown Estate holds third party insurance to cover visitors to Glenlivet Estate and every member of staff is First Aid trained. Please note that Rangers are there to lead the activities and teachers/leaders need to be responsible for the supervision and discipline of the group at all times.
