You don't surprise me with this - companies have to take HSE and public liability very seriously these days.On a side note, regarding the rocla quarry, aka the baldivis sand pit. I was talking to some of our reps and managers about getting permission from the owners of the quarry to let us set up a temporary race track in the pit.
They said that having something set up in the pit on a permanent or temporary basis for public/private use is a no no. Has to do with mines and quarry regulations and public safety etc.
When we use the pit for a bash we are technically tresspassing on private property,( rocla quarry ltd), if we were asked to leave the area during a bash session we would have to leave. It's the risk we take when we use the pit.
So we can scratch the pit out for a club track area.........................it's still an awesome bash spot though.
When I saw the suggestion that Rocla be contacted I thought that would spell the end of us using it altogether.
At the moment we can claim we don't know we shouldn't be using it and from Rocla's point of view, even if they know people use it, they can also claim ignorance. Not that this would help them in a court - they would be liable in the event of an accident, especially as they leave the gate open. If they were formally asked for permission and said no (as we expect) then it would be on record and they would probably lock the gates to prevent access.
Sorry to be negative and not offer any alternatives at the moment.
