Risk Management in the Outdoors is essential reading for students and practitioners involved in outdoor education, sport, recreation and tourism. Written by an expert author team, it explores the value of the outdoors in a society that is increasingly risk- adverse, but at the same time pushes the commodification of high risk and extreme activities. Drawing upon the risk management process from the International Standard on Risk Management, ISO 31000, this text adopts a whole-of-organisation approach to risk management. It covers: * organisational sustainability * legal issues * program design * activities * severe weather scenarios * incident analysis . Risk Management in the Outdoors provides direction on how best to manage the 'down-side' of risk taking while maximising the potential benefits. Each chapter contains focus questions, case studies, action points for practitioners, plus further questions and activities.
