Safety in canyoning and outdoor sports
purelements® is certified!

During its more than 20 years of existence, purelements® has always committed itself to its initial mantra, which is: Safety, not only for the customers, but also for the employees and the community in the broader sense. purelements® ensures safety and satisfaction, values that have top priority for us.

With the highest level of professionalism, the company has carefully selected its qualified employees in order to be able to offer a considerable range of quality tours. Weather conditions and water levels are monitored daily. purelements® also adheres to the highest standards in terms of the quality of the equipment. Before and after each tour, the material is checked and, if necessary, repaired or removed.

Each individual tour is judged according to the level of performance depending on the degree of difficulty – self-evaluation, the specific season, the actual water level and the weather conditions, whereby the final decision on the safe implementation of the tour or a possible cancellation is incumbent on the responsible guide. If the guide thinks the weather or water level is unsuitable, you will have the full support of the purelements® management in your decision.

purelements® always strives to maintain the highest level of security and thus regularly checks whether all security plans are being adhered to. This is done with the help of feedback from guides, customers and other available information about the environment.

The only thing left to do is to get in contact with us to have fun together outside in this unique piece of nature and under the lowest possible risk conditions.

The “Safety in Adventure” foundation

Safety for outdoor and adventure – certified

For rafting, canyoning or rope activities: Risk management and safety are particularly important for an outdoor adventure. That is why outdoor providers were able to have themselves certified by the SGS with the safety management system of the “Safety in adventures” foundation – and thus guarantee compliance with safety and quality standards.

A new regulation has been in force in Switzerland since May 1st, 2019. For adventure and outdoor providers who are certified, the ISO standards “Adventure tourism” already certified providers can continue to renew their certification annually.

Anyone who has themselves checked on site once a year retains the certification. Are controlled z. B. the training of the guides and the nature of the material.

SGS and Safety in Adventures were a reliable partner, in the course of the re-certification we decided to switch to the ISO standard and a new certification body
