Abseiling accidents and injuries can be very serious, depending on where you are Abseiling and the level at which you are involved in this activity. If you are a beginner, you should make sure there is always a Qualified Instructor with you at all times.
These are the most common injuries due to the fact you are in continued contact with rocks and rough surfaces.
Knuckles Stress Fractures
Again another hand injury that is due to constant use of the hands to climb. You should rest if the pain is more than you can take.
You may experience aching elbows and shoulders once again it is advised to rest or doing some stretching excercises.
If you are Abseiling down a mountain, it is important that you are aware of the risk of Avalanches so that you can prevent a serious or fatal injury. A prior knowledge of the warning signs of an Avalanche could help you avoid serious injury and keep you safe. These warnings can be different depending in which country you are Abseiling in. The Avalanche Warnings in Europe are graded differently than the Avalanche Warnings in the USA. It is important to check the warning levels of each Region or Country beforehand.
Before you start Abseiling, you should make sure the structure you will be descending is safe. Also, check your equipment thoroughly to ensure it is safe to use and that you have the correct equipment required. The most important piece of equipmenet is a Rope. Make sure you use the correct Abseiling techniques, and even if you do not use a harness, you will definitely need a good quality Climbing Rope.
You must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as protective headwear, ropes and harness etc.) are used and worn at all times.
There is no Personal Liability cover with this policy, whilst taking part in Abseiling.
