Disclosure of Risk
The Get2Go Challenge is a non-profit activity day organised by Hillary Outdoors Education Centres with the help of sports clubs and organisations around the country. The sports clubs and organisations based in the communities where the challenges take place assist by setting up and running their sports challenge on the day and providing volunteers to manage the safety and scoring. Hillary Outdoors coordinates the entries from schools and provides information to the registered teams and clubs and organisations assisting. It also provides the assisting clubs with generic hazard management and briefing information and the framework for scoring the challenges. Each Get2Go Challenge is slightly different, based on location, but the students could be involved in some or all of the following activities – Orienteering, Kayaking and/or Standup paddling and Mountain biking, with Problem Solving and/or Indoor Rock-Climbing also included in some events. These activities contain some element of risk. This risk is countered by comprehensive safety briefings and by supervising the activities with experienced adults. It is important for safety purposes that students follow instructions given to them in the briefings. Participation in all activities at the Get2Go event is voluntary. It should also be understood that because of the changeable and unpredictable nature of the outdoors, that the risk can never be reduced to zero. Hazards exist in these activities that may result in serious injury or even death. The types of hazards include: slippery conditions, uneven ground, heights, cold and changeable weather, high winds, hypothermia, hyperthermia, sunstroke/sunburn, dehydration, water, moving at speed e.g. when cycling and vehicle travel (to/from and around the event).
