For client safety and enjoyment we ensure Standup Paddle safe operational procedures are documented and adhered to under Worksafe NZ standards. The aim; to eliminate, isolate or minimise risk.
Standup Paddle has some degree of risk and at times some of this risk can only be minimised. The risk may be due to one or more of the following factors, or otherwise: location, weather, tide and currents, water surface conditions, client not following instructions, client skill, confidence or fitness, client misjudgment or error, other Standup Paddle participants or other water users.
One or more of these factors may cause risk which may result in incidents ranging from very minor through to serious. Risk likelihood for very minor incidents is medium e.g sunburn, mild dehydration, mild hypothermia, cuts, bruises and sprains. Risk likelihood for any serious incidents is extremely low e.g serious injuries or death. Despite the likelihood, risk remains.
