Safety concept

Purelements Summer

Security is one of our core values. For this reason, we have developed a special safety concept for our canyoning events in our “purelements summer” division. In our summer “Canyoning” safety concept, we focus on people surrounded by their material, the canyoning equipment. We consider the participants (YOU), the guides (WE) and the resulting connection of the group (TOGETHER). We combine these parts into a comprehensive security concept with clearly defined and binding security standards.

1. The focus is on people

We see you in the center! We undertake to constantly improve and train our general aptitude so that we can meet you with in-depth knowledge in the field of communication and human interaction. We implement these in the methodical structure of the learning content and briefings, as well as in the communication with you as a participant. The goal is effective understanding through clear communication without misunderstandings with you. This becomes clear in our understandable briefings, which we keep target group-oriented and with time for inquiries.

We see constant further training internally and externally as the basis for our specialist knowledge. The guides and tour guides from purelements have been trained by one of the professional associations listed below and have a current license. They regularly take part in their advanced and advanced training courses, as well as internal training courses, for example on the subject of “risk management”. This is a mandatory requirement for us. Only those who are up-to-date, physically fit and therefore fully concentrated and prudent have free resources to ensure safety in the Canyon.

  • Commission Internationale de Canyon
  • Tyrolean mountain guide association
  • Mountain Guide Association Carinthia
  • Association of German Mountain and Ski Guides (IVBV additional training in canyoning)
  • Swiss Outdoor Association

Every purelements employee renews their association licenses on a regular basis. Internally, we constantly check technical and social skills. We regularly revise our tour and safety concept for canyoning, in the process new knowledge is integrated and old behavior is critically examined. Furthermore, we face the review of the brand “Allgäu” with its quality and sustainability criteria and the quality criteria of the Association of Allgäu Outdoor Companies.

Our business liability insurance covers liability claims that are culpably caused to a third party through our business activities. This liability risk exists for purelements as a legal person as well as for the individual employees. In addition, all of our freelance guides have their own public liability insurance.

The personal responsibility of every single canyoning athlete is essential. As a canyon climber, you have the duty to adhere to guidelines for the protection of your fellow travelers and yourself. For this reason, people impaired by medication, alcohol or drugs are not welcome on tours and guided tours by purelements and can be excluded from the canyoning events without compensation.

Through our briefings, instructions and training, as a participant in a canyoning tour, you will acquire skills and abilities that will reduce your risk of accidents. However, your realistic self-assessment should not be missing. We support you specifically with your self-assessment in the canyon, in which we accompany you again and again in decisions about the feasibility of jumps, slides and abseiling points. In this way we anchor your canyoning knowledge and skills and give you a realistic assessment of your own limits.
