Adventure Lifesigns takes the Health and Safety of its staff and Explorers extremely seriously. As a founding member of the Expedition Providers Association we were instrumental in helping to create the LOtC Overseas Expedition Quality Badge and have been independently assessed by the Adventure Activity Associates. The LOtC Quality Badge covers the preparation and execution of adventurous activities abroad so that the level of risk included is reasonable and acceptable. Our Chief Executive is also the current Chairman of the Expedition Providers Association.
Our staff are individually selected to lead groups overseas. Selection of staff is based on many factors, including both hard and soft skills. We select our Expedition Leaders for their ability to communicate with groups and be fun people to have around! All expedition staff must complete an arduous training and selection process, assessed by our experienced core team of instructors. All key staff have undertaken training in Off-Site Safety Management.
Expeditions are equipped with a Satellite Telephone, Personal Locator Beacon, Satellite Tracking Beacon and a Global Positioning System Handset (GPS). As well as having advanced remote medical qualifications, our Expedition Leaders are linked to a 24-hour “teli-medical” system with UK doctors on-call 24-hours a day.
Our Operations Room is active 24-hours a day, whilst groups are overseas. With our team of highly qualified incident managers on alert to coordinate rescue work.
Adventure Lifesigns are self certified against British Standard 8848.
