■ a detailed safety briefing will be conducted before each trip
■ the oarsman for the trip explains what to do if the raft flips, how to help each other out of the water and what conditions to expect. He always gives the worst case scenario so that people know what to expect from the trip and, therefore, have the choice to forego their trip after the safety talk
