Safety Tips

We want both Hosts and Participants to arrive prepared for their pvlses and leave satisfied. Below are a few tips that we hope will mean you enjoy your activity to the fullest!

PVLSE Participant Safety Tips

  1. Know Your Location

Discovering a great PVLSE is no good if you can’t find it!

Research the area in which the event is being held before attending, should it be somewhere you are unfamiliar with. You can always contact hosts for more information on the venue if you are unsure.

  1. Make Travel Arrangements In Advance

Nobody likes getting stuck away from home!

If you are travelling via public transport make sure that services are running as usual and are on time; there are various map apps available that can plot routes should you need to use trains or buses.

Should you be using your own transport make sure you have sufficient fuel etc. and try to have someone on standby able to collect you should anything go wrong with your means of transport (we hope it won’t!). This brings neatly to our next point –

  1. Let Someone Know Your Plans

Tell them not to wait up!

Always let someone know your plans to attend an event – This could be a parent, a partner or a friend. You could even bring someone with you to join in the fun!

  1. Consider Clothing & Equipment

Trust us, Boxercise will be no fun if you turn up wearing a suit!

Make sure you consider the event you are attending – If it is a PVLSE that includes exercise then ensure you wear appropriate footwear/clothing; should it be an outside event consider bringing an umbrella (just in case!).

PVLSE Hosts will do their best to make participants aware of everything required to take part in their event, but if you are unsure do not be afraid to reach out and ask them!

  1. Be vigilant.  

If you see something strange, report it.

Look out for your fellow PVLSE community members as well as yourself.  If you see behaviour that violates terms, on or off the platform, ensure to report it as soon as possible to the appropriate authorities as well as the PVLSE team, as we cannot be responsible for everyone who attends activities.


PVLSE Host Safety Tips

  1. Choose A Safe Location

A football match next to a motorway is never a good idea!

If you are organising an event of any kind make sure it is in a safe environment, ideally close to local amenities (train/bus stations, cafes, hospitals etc.) so as to make it as accessible to your participants as possible.

2. Give Participants As Much Information & Guidance As You Can

Forewarned is forearmed!

This is a very important part of the process. Depending on the event or activity you are hosting, you may need to inform people of certain prerequisites such as minimum fitness level, age restrictions, or any other basic knowledge needed to take part in your PVLSE.

A sturdy pair of walking boots, bicycle lights, or a head guard could all be vital pieces of safety equipment necessary to take part in your event – if this is the case then make sure people know before attending to avoid disappointment.

Also ensure that participants know about any specific travel required to get to your PVLSE – If a location is hard to find, try to add a Google map link or a detailed set of instructions so that everyone makes it to your activity on time and in one piece!

3. Permissions & Licenses

It’s all legal until it’s not!

If you are hosting a PVLSE on private or restricted land you MUST have landowner permission.

Also, if your PVLSE includes equipment of any kind that requires a licence (for example a drone or archery equipment) you MUST make sure you have the necessary licences, insurance (personal or public liability) and qualifications for both yourself and others (if applicable) to use the equipment.

PVLSE takes absolutely no responsibility for damages, accidents, or any legal implications that may arise from using equipment illegally.

4. Consider Keeping A First Aid Kit With You

Prepare for the worst, expect the best!

We obviously hope that there is never any need for first aid whilst participating in your PVLSEs, but should there be an accident or injury during an event or activity it is always a good idea to have a basic first aid kit nearby.

This is not obligatory but encouraged!

5. Consider Offering Water If Hosting A Physically Demanding PVLSE

Hydration is key!

Again this is not obligatory, but if your PVLSE includes exercise or physical exertion it may be a good idea to bring some water for your participants to drink in order to keep well hydrated.

As well as being smart and possibly saving any incidents of overheating/exhaustion, offering people water during your PVLSE will also look very professional and compassionate to your participants… So it’s a win win!
