Common Injuries whilst Abseiling

Abseiling accidents and injuries can be very serious, depending on where you are Abseiling and the level at which you are involved in the sport. If you are a beginner, you should make sure there is always a qualified Instructor with you at all times. Some of the most common injuries are sustained from:

  • Falling Rocks
  • Losing Control of the Rope
  • A Fall
  • Failure of Equipment
  • Anxiety and Stress caused by fear
  • Fall on Rugged Terrain

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.

Abseiling Equipment

Before you start Abseiling, you should make sure the structure you will be descending is safe and able to withstand the activity. Also, check your equipment thoroughly to ensure it is safe to use and that you have the correct equipment required.

Important Information

To ensure your Travel Insurance remains valid, you must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as protective headwear etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Abseiling for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.

This activity does not provide Accidental Death & Disability Benefit or Personal Liability cover.
