Health & Safety in sport is tremendously important, especially within extreme sports where the threat of danger is always prevalent. Winter & water sports give rise to most concern and dangerous situations.
It is in times of difficulty that we find two scenario’s. One of the safety taken by the ‘adventurer’ or extreme sportsman and the other if there is a need for search and rescue.
Hopefully, even an extreme sports fanatic takes the basic precautions and safety measures relative to their sport and surrounding environment in the event of problems occurring. If that isn’t to be, then the search and rescue team assigned to help the individual in distress needs to be equipped to the highest standards.
In the this blog we look at health & safety from all angles. If you have any feedback or want to contribute to this blog, feel free to make contact
