Society Policies

Ethics, duty of care, liability & insurance

         The Society endeavours to make our activities accessible to all.

         The Society encourages members to follow the Geological Code for fieldwork and collecting published by the Geologists’ Association.

         Child and vulnerable adults protection

The Officers, Committee and volunteers of the Society have not had a criminal record check. Young members and guests under the age of 18 should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

         Disability access

The Society will whenever practicable make activities accessible to disabled people. The accessibility of the rooms for our indoor meetings is the responsibility of the hosts. The rooms do not have inductions loops for members with hearing difficulties. There are adjustable tables and chairs in some of the meeting rooms we use. The nature of geological fieldwork means that it is often unsuitable for people using wheelchairs or have other mobility problems.

         First aiders

The leaders and volunteers at our events are not required to be first aiders.

         Public liability

The Society has third party public liability insurance through our affiliation to the Geologists’ Association.

         Personal accident

Members and guests attending our events are advised to have their own personal accident insurance.

         Public disclaimer

The views expressed in the Society’s publicationsare not necessarily those of the Society. Mention of a site in our publications does not imply that there is a right to access to that site or that permission to visit and collect specimens has been granted by the owner.
