  • What do I need to ensure safe travel for my group?
    We are happy to assist you in ensuring that you have all of the necessary information to successfully assess risks and ensure a safe trip for you and your group. You can contact your International Advisor for additional guidance and support.
  • Do you provide risk assessments for accommodation centres?
    Venture Abroad have individual audits which are completed on every accommodation centre which we use. We are more than happy for you to see this should you wish. Our audits cover fire safety, means of escape and general safety, which may help you to complete your own risk assessments.
  • What should be included in my risk assessment?
    Start by identifying the potential hazards before deciding on the appropriate precautions to minimize the potential risk for your group. Once identified, record your findings and implement the precautions.
  • Do you provide risk assessments for the visits you offer?
    You can download our Generic Risk Management Handbook which will help you complete your risk assessment. The aim of the handbook is to provide all group leaders with supportive suggestions to help raise awareness to risk, suggest control measures to help mitigate the risk and manage risk pro-actively but they shouldn’t be used in place of your own risk assessment. For further assistance, please speak to a member of our team who will be happy to help.
