Acknowledge of Risk
We have taken all reasonable steps to provide you with the level of care and assurances of safety appropriate to these activities. However you should be aware that certain inherent risks remain which are integral to the abseil which cannot be eliminated without destroying it’s unique character. Amongst other things, some of the risks can contribute to:
- The loss or damage of personal clothing and / or equipment,
- Feelings of fear, apprehension or discomfort
- Accidental injury, illness, trauma which in extreme but thankfully very rare cases, can be very serious.
The level of real (as opposed to perceived) risk associate with the abseil is very low. But please let us know if you are uncomfortable with the perceived risk level at any point and our staff will do their best to assist and reassure you. However, please do be aware that if you are unable to abseil we cannot issue a refund.
Challenging elements of the experience that you may encounter include:
Height: The abseil platform is 80 metres high and very exposed.
Physical Effort: The abseil involves a degree of physical strength in your arms as you will be required to lower yourself using the belay device provided (although you will be also belayed by an abseil instructor as a back-up).
Environmental risks and hazards: As the abseil platform is 80 metres high and exposed to the elements, you may be exposed to high winds, cold, driving rain and, in rare cases, lightning. Our abseil instructors are trained to deal with these conditions and will evacuate the abseil platform and close the experience as necessary.
Wire & Sky has clear obligations and responsibilities and we take these very seriously. However we will be expecting participants to contribute to their own and each other’s safety by following the instructions of our staff.
Signing this Declaration in no way compromises your legal rights, nor does it release Wire & Sky Ltd from any of its obligations towards you. It is merely to make sure you are fully aware of what the abseil will involve.
By signing this I do not release Wire & Sky from any of its obligations towards me, nor does it affect my legal rights. I have however read and understood the risks involved in the ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil experience run by Wire & Sky and agree that I would like to participate in the abseil and will abide by the abseil participant terms & conditions that have been identi ied to me.
