Health & Safety Guide

Health & Safety Guide

When leading tours advertised by our Association, our members agree to comply to the following guidelines in order to keep you safe and reduce risk.  All our members are Blue or Green Badge Guides, qualified by the Institute of Tourist Guiding, and all work on a freelance basis, and maintain an up to date Public Liability Insurance policy.  All our Guides are trained to pro-actively risk assess their tours during their operation, advising clients accordingly to help them avoid unnecessary risks which may compromise their safety.

What Our Guides Will Do:

  • Be aware of and advise you to be aware of uneven surfaces, steps, trip, slip and bump risks where they appear throughout the tour;
  • Exercise group management skills (e.g. ask you to stand in a specific space, or cross the street at a specific location) in order to limit risk;

What We Need You To Do:

  • Arrive on time, so that you do not miss any safety information at the start of the tour;
  • Be aware of slip, trip, fall & bump hazards, and take extra care by paying attention to traffic when crossing roads;
  • Follow your Tour Guides’ instructions when they advise you of any hazards or potential risk;
