Accidents can be caused by something that a person or organisation does that they should not have done. For example, if they have introduced a new piece of equipment that is not suitable for its job then that could be sufficient to cause an accident. If they have provided facilities that are unsafe and an accident has occurred then they may be found responsible for the accident.
Organisations and individuals can also cause accident solicitor in Bassenthwaite Lake incidents by not doing something that they should have done. If they have not trained their staff properly (or at all) then they are unlikely to be capable of leading an adventurous activity safely. If they do not require their staff to have the appropriate qualifications then this can also present a risk.
Risk assessment is they key factor in preventing many hazards. A comprehensive risk assessment of any activity would include:
- Identifying the hazards – this is what can go wrong and how it would go wrong
- Assessing how likely the hazard is to occur
- Identifying what can be done to minimise the hazard – this may include safety equipment, training and supervision
- Monitoring safety procedures to make sure that they are working and are keeping people safe
- Investigating and learning from dangerous incidents where someone was hurt or could have been hurt
- Reviewing the risk assessment regularly and when any new activities or equipment are introduced
