4.3c Risk management - an overview
Risk management, in the context of outdoor learning and off-site visits, is a two stage process:
- The identification of the potential benefits to be gained from an activity, along with any risks to the health and safety of those involved.
- The implementation of a plan to best realise these benefits, using professional judgement to ensure that the level of risk does not exceed that which can be justified by the benefits.
Most human activity involves balancing benefits and risks. We cannot have all of the benefits but none of the risks. We can eliminate all of the risk only by stopping the activity – but we then lose all of the benefits.
