Health & Safety

The industry leaders in health & safety management

We set industry standards when it comes to health and safety management and risk assessments. Learn how we make compliance easy.

People often ask what makes MasterClass tours different to other sports tours. There are lots of reasons (like value for money, elite coaching and on-site reps available 24/7).

But a big differentiator is our approach to health and safety.

You’re responsible for administering risk assessments to a legal standard, and schools often find this daunting and onerous when planning tours. We’ve earned plaudits for our comprehensive service, which helps you complete relevant documentation and ensures you have accurate and compliant risk assessments.

Our qualified Health & Safety Manager ensures you meet the highest standards, giving you peace of mind so you can focus on enjoying a fantastic tour.

When you are responsible for over 40 students travelling to another part of the world, risk assessment and health and safety are a massively important aspect of any tour planning.
