Health and Safety

At Haut-Lac we know that the quality of programme on offer means nothing if all Health  and Safety issues are not fully incorporated into the daily practices of our staff.

We have worked very hard in the areas of identification of potential hazards, upgrading and maintenance of equipment, organisational safety systems, staff training, communication and administration. This is a continuous process and is reviewed and updated at least twice a year.

Haut-Lac’s goal is to ensure that the transport, accommodation and services we provide are clean and safe, fit for purpose, comply with the appropriate legislation and meet or exceed the core values as set out in our Code of Practice document which all groups receive in advance of their trip.

It is Haut-Lac’s prime aim and objective to ensure that we adopt good working practices and comply with current legislation and we achieve this through the following methods:

  • Taking every reasonable measure to reduce the risk of accidents.
  • Maintaining a Safety Management System.
  • Ensuring that our services comply wherever applicable with the current local, national and/or international standards.
  • Maintaining accurate and up to date Health and Safety records.
  • Actively promoting the awareness, continual assessment and improvement of operational standards with regards to Health and Safety among our staff.
  • Providing intensive training for staff so they are able to make informed decisions and react appropriately in any given situation.
  • Regular inspection of equipment and transport.
  • Actively seeking feedback on Health and Safety issues from our clients and on our staff performance.
  • Maintaining management structures to ensure consistent implementation of our Code of Practice and Safety Management System.
