Risk management can often be poorly understood and applied in the leisure, sport, tourism (including adventure) and event industries. In particular, there can be a tendency to see the management of risk as simply its avoidance or removal from activities, projects and business ventures. Unfortunately, this can reduce the quality of the activity experience, or mean opportunities for profits are missed. This book is therefore designed for students and practitioners who wish to improve upon past practices, make better management decisions and ensure safer operating environments. It includes: - an explanation of the core underpinning concepts of risk and safety, which can be used at different levels of management, in different countries, for all leisure related industry sectors; - numerous applied examples and case studies from around the world; - many practical hints and tips on how to analyse, assess and control risks and improve on safety; - explanations of the key legal and regulatory underpinnings of risk and safety; - how risk and safety management practices can be developed, and their relevance for health and safety assessments, project risk management and strategic planning.
