In support of the increasing popularity of adventure tourism, Line Business Services Ltd has brought together a team of specialists in this global industry. Together they have over 100 years of experience in auditing a very wide range of adventure activities.
Our senior team is backed up by access to many other experts throughout the world who are available to undertake independent audits for activity providers, enabling them to achieve an independent BS 8848 certification. Such certification will give commercial providers increased credibility in the marketplace; and assure institutional providers (schools, colleges, etc.) that their staff have the skills to organise activities in line with good safety practices.
Our consultants have experience in all areas and environments around the world, from the freezing landscapes of the Arctic to the mountains of the Himalayas and the world’s most remote jungles and deserts.
We can provide basic information on how best to manage your venture, giving you advice on safety issues you may not have considered and assuring you that the risks associated with the outdoor adventure activities you have organised have been identified and the action necessary to manage them has been taken or planned for (as appropriate). Alternatively, we can provide a full audit of your systems to BS 8848 standard, which may include a visit to the venture provider at their activity location.
If you are a provider of outdoor and adventure activities, we can appoint a technical advisor to provide information on the latest best practice or even help you gain an Independent BS 8848 Certification. By assessing or auditing your safety operating procedures, we can enhance your corporate status to potential end-users, making you the attractive choice for future clients giving you increased credibility.
Throughout the whole inspection and auditing process, our consultants are aware of the potential impact of the activity on the global environment and are well qualified to advise on ways to minimise it.
