Health and Safety

We pride ourselves on our excellent Health and Safety record. The feedback that we receive from Companies, Schools and Youth Organisations continually rates Oaker Wood as a friendly, caring and safe environment in which their organisation can participate and enjoy all activities whilst on site.

On all our activities we provide, fully trained, experienced marshals to ensure your safety & maximise your fun and enjoyment.

All our instructors are continually monitored on performance and safety on all activities We place a great emphasis on customer feedbacks.

All departments receive Health and Safety awareness training and all senior marshals carry a current, valid First Aid Certificate.

We have a full child protection policy available on request.

All our safety equipment is checked prior to all activity sessions and is renewed on a regular basis.

We can offer all parties a complete, up to date Risk Assessment and Health and Safety Policy, along with proof of valid insurance. (These are only provided on request).

Any participants under the age of 16 must have a completed Parental/Guardian Consent Form with them on the day. These are provided on booking or please download it here. For child attending our Holiday Club we require you to complete our Health & Emergency Contact Form

Team Leaders are reminded to inform Senior Marshals of any medical conditions that they need to be aware of and that correct, valid and plentiful medication is available on the day. The responsibility is on the organiser NOT the operator.

"Your safety is our concern…"

What our customers say

I would like to say a very big thank you from all the staff and children at Water Mill for making our stay at Oaker Wood unforgettable. The children had a wonderful time taking part in new activities and doing things they never thought they would be able to do. You all looked after us really well and your staff are a credit to you.

Watermill Primary - June 18

The children had a fantastic time and the staff were really impressed too. The food was great and went down well with the children. Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff. The children didn't stop talking about them. It was so lovely to have staff that really encouraged the children; many of the children achieved more than we expected and it was all down to their encouragement.

On the journey to Oaker Wood I thought I was expecting too much. I came back knowing I'd expected too little. Everything from the rooms to the activities were better than I ever imagined. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

We did the Bourne Obelisk in the afternoon. Great choice of tasks, clear instructions and instructors let us work it out for ourselves, and interjected as needed. Staff were mega patient - an awesome team, and we got a prize at the end.

Sharon - Hen Party - June 18

Boxy, mark and George were amazingly patient and joined in our banter during our clay pigeon shooting whilst ensuring we were all safe at all times. They were super helpful, gave everyone loads of help, no one was left out and they made sure everyone hit something.
