YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY AT OUR CORE


For activities with a higher potential risk, a risk against benefit approach balances the benefits of experience against that risk. The law expects leaders and others to manage significant risks as far as is reasonably practicable.

This section supports you in developing and sustaining an enabling attitude towards Outdoor Learning via the use of The City of Edinburgh Approved Adventurous Activity Providers list, Excursion Policy guidance and support, and critical safety information.
