Managing Risks in Nature
Since 1941 around the world and since 1969 in Canada, we have had policies and procedures to minimize risk on ALL of our programs. Any risks posed by traveling in our tripping areas are taken into account and controlled and reduced through practices supporting these policies.
At Outward Bound Canada (OBC), students are deliberately encouraged to take part in activities containing unfamiliar risks that are not part of their normal life. As an organization our role is to use perceived and real risks as teaching tools to enhance self-confidence. Our extensive risk management policies and procedures have been devised to minimize accident potential and are set forth in our National Risk Management Policy.
