Safety Comes First
Safety is at the forefront of everything we do.
A to Z Expeditions works hard to ensure that our expedition programmes provide an appropriate challenge for participants without compromising on safety.
In this section you will find information about the high standards we up hold as well as the technology we use, and checks we perform before our expeditions even begin.
A to Z Expeditions is a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Approved Activity Provider. We work closely with DofE head office and DofE Operating Authorities across the country to ensure our programmes fulfil the DofE Expedition Requirements.
We utilise the latest technology to ensure our groups have a safe and enjoyable expedition experience.
Inspired by the SARLOC system used by mountain rescue teams, we have developed FindMe to help locate lost groups. It uses the geolocation software on participants mobile phones to send us a fix on their location.
We also have a stock of Personal Locator Beacons which we issue to groups undertaking expeditions in remote areas. When activated the PLB sends a distress signal directly to the emergency services.
