Safety & Quality

Steep & Deep consider that safety and quality are intrinsic.
We recognise our responsibility to conduct activities within a solid framework of safety.

We are privileged to employ some of the most highly qualified and experienced instructors in the country and our equipment store is of first class standard.
Insurance details and safety policy documents are available to all visits co-ordinators.

Risk Management

We identify that managing risk is a life skill and in some circumstances we may actively encourage participants to become engaged in the process of risk assessment at the planning stages, while undertaking activity and during debriefing and reviews.
This process is known as ‘Risk Benefit Management’.

Quality is measured by using key indicators such as participation, enjoyment, skill acquisition, improved confidence and achievement. We strategically organise our programmes to effect maximum engagement and best value for time.
