The Outdoor Safety Institute promotes outdoor activities by providing outdoor education and recreation programs with safety and liability management support and educating the public about wilderness risk management.
"10 Steps to Better Risk Management" identifies ten common ways to improve safety and liability related practices in outdoor, adventure, guiding, service, conservation, and related organizations. Intended to initiate a renewed risk management effort, the suggestions can be addressed in a ten step effort. These practical approaches are drawn from the dozens of programs that OSI's safety team has assessed.
