Topic - Risk assessment: slacklining

hallidak - on 16 Jun 2013
Hi, I found a very similar post a while back, but couldn't reply as it was archived. So I apologise now if this is repeating things, I hope it doesn't annoy anyone too much!

I am going to be leading a camp (voluntary, not paid) of 16-25 year olds, and was wanting to use my slackline as an evening activity. I was wondering whether
1.doing a risk assessment, and
2. getting signatures [either their own, or parents if under 18] stating they are aware of the risks (and are responsible themselves for their participation)
would cover my back in terms of potential injuries and claims. I think it's a great activity and would really love to be able to do it, but can't quite figure out if it is worth it. The previous post was in reference to primary school kids, so was hoping someone would have similar experiences with 16's and older, and have any advice to offer to me?

Thankyou :)
