These are examples of the general safety procedures that should be adopted by activity operators and organisers to prevent accidents.
- Training – staff running the activity have to be appropriately trained. The training has to suit the job that they are doing. It also has to be updated and refreshed regularly. The people taking part in the activity must also have an appropriate level of instruction before they start and this could be training in how to use the equipment properly and how behave whilst the activity is underway.
- Admission – some activities need to have age, height or weight restrictions. This is to ensure that all the safety equipment works properly and the participants are old enough to understand the instructions and fit enough to take part. Some people may be excluded because of medical conditions.
- Equipment – every water sport has a set of appropriate safety equipment but it is not enough to just provide it – participants have to wear it, it must fit them properly and it must be checked for faults and wear and tear on every occasion that it is used.
- Safety procedures – every water sport will have a safe system of operation. This is a collection of procedures that must be followed. A risk assessment has to be carried out for every activity in order to identify what the hazards are and minimise or remove the risk of them occurring.
