Health and Safety

We pride ourselves on our excellent Health and Safety record. The feedback that we receive from Companies, Schools and Youth Organisations, Families and Stag & Hen Groups 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 instructors 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 feedback.

All departments receive Health and Safety awareness training and all senior instructors 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 children attending our Holiday Club we require you to complete our Health & Emergency Contact Form

Team Leaders are reminded to inform Senior Instructors 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

We did the paintballing with the minimum number (8), but appreciated not having to join in with another group, and enjoyed the range of sites available. We also really appreciated the emphasis they put on safety, and how well organised everything was - we felt the timings were just right for what we were doing, and were really good value for money.

Adam - Stag Weekend - April 19

The staff were really engaging and friendly, and especially for the shooting we felt really looked after as an instructor is with you in the booth the whole time giving you advice and helping you get the most out of it.

Please could you pass on our huge thanks to all of your team at Oaker Wood. Especially Chris. Our little and big kids had a great time this weekend. They are all still sharing their stories.

Chinnor Rugby Club U13s

Our 3rd visit and again thoroughly enjoyed. Excellent place to unwind and let the kids get involved with all the activities. Very professional hosts who go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your stay.

Llandaff North Rugby Club - March 19

We would just like to say thank you very much for yesterday afternoon with our learners. They had a fantastic time and loved every minute of it. We will be returning in the future!

Sheena Palma - Nova Training - March 19

This was our second party here, and once again it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. George and Melissa our instructors were amazing, no aspect of safety for the activity was left unturned, and they were very accommodating to a very excitable bunch of ten year olds!! Drinks were supplied, tea and coffee for supervising adults which was great!! I would certainly recommend a trip or party at Oakerwood!!

10 Year old Paintball Party - March 19

Junior quad biking party for 11 year olds - What a fabulous time had by all the kids and parents! Best party I have ever given my boy over the years by far! Highly recommended

Nikki Ayres - March 19

Once again, a huge Thank-You to you and your team for a brilliant couple of days in the woods. The activities were just right for the boys, and the feedback we got was overwhelmingly positive. So… We’d like to get booked in for next year please!

James Soper - Warwick School - Oct 18

Vicky Jolly - 9th Birthday - Paintball

What a fabulous time we had at Oaker Wood as part of 50th birthday celebrations. 23 of us split between the quad bikes, high ropes and clay shooting and each group thought they had the best experience.....quite an achievement. The staff were friendly, professional and supportive while the activities were exciting and fun, all set in a glorious location.
