Health & Safety
When planning a school visit, the health, safety and well-being of all pupils and members of staff is of prime importance. At Fussell´s Travel Service, we provide sample risk assessments for all aspects of your visit.
With over 30 years of combined experience in travel and education, there are few places we have not visited. We are therefore able to offer specific advice to group leaders to ensure each visit runs smoothly.
Accommodation used by FTS
The vast majority of our tours use Youth Hostel accommodation. We carry out pre-visit inspections of all hostels which we use. We produce an accommodation risk assessment for each specific hostel which is then passed on to the group leader.
As part of our risk assessment procedure, we will endeavour to obtain confirmation that the hostel/centre has the following:
A) a current fire certificate or local equivalent,
B) appropriate insurance,
C) a current hygiene certificate or local equivalent.
Coach Operators Used by FTS
We only used coaches supplied by a small gorup of select coach operators who meet our high standards.
All our coach operators must provide, on an annual basis, a copy of the following documentation before we will consider using their services:
A) Operating Licence
B) Motor Vehicle Insurance
C) Public Liability Insurance
All drivers must have received clearance from the Criminal Records Bureau or Scottish Criminal Records Office.
