Indian Odyssey is committed to running the safest expeditions possible. Our expedition leaders ensure smooth and secure operations on every expedition, prioritizing the safety of our participants. Along with experts, we meticulously design and manage our expeditions to adhere to the highest safety standards.
Evaluation of Activity Risks:
To ensure participant safety, we conduct a comprehensive assessment of all trip components using the following variables:
Hazard Identification: Identifying potential risks involved.
Likelihood and Severity of Injury: Assessing the probability and seriousness of potential injuries (e.g., possible and fatal, likely and minor, unlikely and non-fatal).
Control Measures: Implementing measures to reduce the likelihood of accidents.
Further Actions: Outlining appropriate steps to be taken in the event of an injury to minimize risks.
Remaining Risk: Evaluating the remaining risk level as high, low, or medium.
On-call Doctor: We have medical professionals available for immediate assistance. If necessary, a doctor can accompany the group for all days as well.
Emergency Procedures and Nearby Hospitals: We have accounted for emergency procedures and identified the nearest hospitals.
First Aid-CPR Certified Staff: All our instructors and facilitators are certified in first aid and CPR.
Medical Facilities at Camps: We can provide medical facilities at campsites with resident doctors.
24/7 Vehicle Availability: We have a vehicle on-site at all times for any emergency situations.
Parent Communication: In case of an emergency, we promptly inform parents and establish contact with their personal doctors.
General Safety Measures:
Pre-Trip Briefing: Participants receive a comprehensive briefing before the trip, including a list of essential items to carry.
Activity-specific Briefings: Before each activity, participants receive detailed instructions and safety briefings.
Well-equipped Camps and Resorts: Our camps and resorts are equipped with trained staff and vigilant watchmen.
Availability of First Aid Kits: First aid kits are readily available through our instructors and trip leaders.
Hygiene and Clean Accommodations: Ensuring hygienic and clean accommodations is our top priority.
Risk Assessment: Teachers themselves acquire the ability to assess the level of risk associated with outdoor activities offered at a specific destination. This includes identifying hazards, evaluating the likelihood and seriousness of injuries, implementing control measures to reduce risks, determining further actions to be taken in case of injury, and rating the remaining risk level as high, low, or medium.
Accommodation Review: You can review the available accommodation options and choose the most suitable option for your students.
Activity Assessment: In addition to ensuring safety measures and protocols, you can assess the quality and educational value of each curated activity, evaluating the skills and learning outcomes it offers.
Review of Learning Outcomes: Each student expedition is designed with specific learning outcomes tailored to the needs of each school. These trips provide teachers with an opportunity to review the comprehensive benefits offered by our expeditions. It allows teachers to personally experience and understand how they can incorporate experiential learning into their curricula.
