The newsletter is produced for the outdoor education, outdoor recreation, adventure travel, eco-travel, ecotourism, environmental education, camp, and guiding fields. The goal of the Outdoor Safety Newsletter is to assist field staff and managers at these programs with outdoor and adventure program risk management. Aspects of the newsletter may also be of interest to the general outdoor enthusiast.
Subscribers to the newsletter will receive a copy of OSI's report "10 Steps to Better Risk Management."
The report identifies ten common ways outdoor programs can improve their safety and liability related practices. Intended as a way to jumpstart a renewed risk management effort, the report's suggestions can be addressed using this easy to follow guide. The suggestions are based on the experience of OSI's reviewers with dozens of outdoor programs.
