The climbing committee ensures the safety of participants and staff members, develops and monitors site-specific set of policies and procedures, documentation injuries and near misses, conducts an annual inspection of facilities and equipment, maintains an inventory of equipment, has the equipment and facilities inspected annually by a third party (a challenge course builder), prepares a written emergency response plan for each site, ensures site-specific equipment for possible rescue scenarios is available at the program sites, approves qualified people to install bolts and hangers specifically designed for climbing purposes and conducts post-program evaluation with participants and/or caregivers for program improvement.
