Your venture is provided by Tangent Expeditions Ltd to British Standard BS8848, Specification for the provision of visits, fieldwork, expeditions and adventurous activities outside the UK. Tangent Expeditions Ltd follows the professional standard and principles set out by the BS8848 British Standard for overseas expeditions. Tangent Expeditions Ltd uses YET as a competent, external and independent "other party" assessor of their conformity to British Standard 8848 as laid down in the specification. The assessment includes a sampling process for verification, but all ventures are subject to self-assessment in accordance with the standard. YET is not acting, of itself, as the arbiter of the quality of provision, but assesses provision by Tangent Expeditions Ltd against the standard to give assurance of good management practice.
Ventures that include adventurous activities involve exposure to accepted elements of risk, challenge and adventure greater than those normally encountered in everyday life. Whilst such activities provided by Tangent Expeditions Ltd are subject to exacting safety management processes, it cannot be guaranteed that all possibility of resultant injury to participants, or others, is eliminated.
