I have noticed a interest in the Health and Safety aspects of some of the more extreme training courses with some of our clients.

This has made for an interesting debate between the HR and H&S departments on occasions.

Hot coal walking, karate style wood chopping and falling backwards into a partners’ arms in the name of trust raise some interesting legal issues in the field of Health and Safety.

I am intending to write an article on this subject and wondered whether other HR professionals had viewed these sort of training programmes as being high risk for the employer?

I would welcome views on this forum of any problems caused by these types of events ( there are already damage cases pending) and how HR professionals asssess the H&S risk?
