Health & Safety

Health & Safety and The Knights of Skirbeck

The Knights of Skirbeck, understandably take health & safety arrangements very seriously. That is why at all events, we have a (nebosh) qualified health & safety officer and a trained first aider - just in case.

All activities have written risk assessments and the group has £5million public liabilty insurance.

All weapons are checked for safety before use and all combatants have to be judged as competant with their chosen weapon(s) before being allowed to participate in free combat. We NEVER choreograph fights. members are taught to fight instinctively, as we believe it not only looks better, but is safer. All training follows the guidelines issued by the, 'Early Medieval Alliance' (an umbrella organisation for independent, medieval re-enactment groups)
