Safety Management System
The health and safety of our groups is our prime concern and CGT Battlefields Ltd is committed to providing the highest reasonable practicable levels of safety throughout our tour programmes. Our Safety Management System explains the policies and procedures laid down by CGT Battlefields Ltd to ensure that all Group Tours operated by CGT Battlefields are as safe as is reasonably practicable.
Therefore we have assessed the main areas of your tour and full details of the areas covered can be found in our Safety Management System.
Please contact us for a copy of the latest version firstname.lastname@example.org
CGT Battlefields have removed the hard work from carrying out risk assessments, giving you useful information, advice and a simple guide to completing the paperwork.
The completion of a risk assessment for your tour is an important and vital step on protecting the health and safety of your group. The primary consideration for any tour must be the safety of individuals for who the tour is being conducted. Additionally, a well-conducted risk assessment will assist in having your trip approved by your local authority and senior management.
The Health and Safety Executive provides clear step by step guidance on the completion of a risk assessment at: www.hse.gov.uk/risk/controlling-risks.htm and a small pamphlet is available for download at: www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg163.pdf
An example risk assessment conducted by CGT Battlefields is available, it is generic and covers the majority of the popular areas visited and is provided only as a useful template/guidance for you to complete your own risk assessment. Please contact us for a copy email@example.com
Only you can complete your risk assessment, every group is different and we will not be aware of health, behaviour, medical requirements and special needs of the individuals travelling. The group leader has a responsibility under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations to ensure risks are assessed and appropriate control measures put in place and final approval of your risk assessment must be signed by a competent person within your own organisation.
Inspection visits can be arranged in advance, to allow you to complete your risk assessments. Please call us to organise on 01454 269764.

It is essential that you read the policy prior to booking in order to fully understand the policy and the level of cover provided - a “Summary of Cover” is attached. Please provide each member of your group with a copy of the summary and be sure to draw all your group members' attention to the policy and ensure that they have read and fully understood the contents and the terms of the policy.
Please note that until the appropriate premium is paid to us, no insurance has been taken out. CGT recommend that any insurance premium is paid to us as soon as possible as the cover cannot start until this payment has been received and your insurance policy documents issued. When the insurance premium is forwarded, we must also receive a full list of the group members travelling. Travel Insurance is person specific and cannot be transferred.
Once the premium has been paid we will issue the insurance certificates and you must distribute them to all party members. The insurer provides a Money Back Guarantee enabling you to cancel the insurance within 14 days of issue should it not meet any group members' requirements. Please draw your group members' attention to the policy terms, conditions and exclusions which they should read and fully satisfy themselves that the policy is suitable for them. It is your responsibility to ensure they receive their copy of the policy in the appropriate time to allow them to secure a refund within 14 days if the policy is not suitable for them. (Where group members are under 18, their parents/guardians must be made aware of these policy, terms, conditions and exclusions.) No refund of premium is provided for cancellation after this time.

Information on the passport and visa requirements applicable for your destination are shown on www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice. You should consider these prior to booking. Requirements may change and you must check the up to date position in good time before departure. A British passport presently takes approximately 2 to 6 weeks to obtain. If you or any member of your party is 16 or over and haven't yet got a passport, you should apply for one at least 6 weeks before your tour. The UK Passport Service has to confirm your identity before issuing your first passport and will ask you to attend an interview in order to do this. If you or any member of your party is not a British citizen or holds a non British passport, you must check passport and visa requirements with the embassy or consulate of the country(ies) to or through which you are intending to travel.
It is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of all recommended vaccinations and health precautions in good time before departure. Details are available from your GP surgery and from the National Travel Health Network and Centre travelhealthpro.org.uk. Information on health abroad is also available on www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Travelhealth. We are not aware of any compulsory health requirements applicable to British citizens taking any of the tours we feature. You should obtain an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) prior to departure from www.ehic.org.uk. An EHIC is not a substitute for travel insurance. Vaccination and other health requirements/recommendations are subject to change at any time for any destination. Please therefore check with a doctor or clinic not less than six weeks prior to departure to ensure that you have met the necessary requirements and have the applicable information.
It is the party leader's responsibility to ensure that all members of the party are in possession of all necessary travel and health documents before departure. All costs incurred in obtaining such documentation must be paid by you. We regret we cannot accept any liability if you are refused entry onto any transport or into any country due to failure on your part to carry all required documentation. If failure to have any necessary travel or other documents results in fines, surcharges or other financial penalty, costs or expenses being imposed on or incurred by us, you will be responsible for reimbursing us accordingly.
