British Risk Management Stats

Bill Stephen over at Bill's Outdoor Learning Blog turned me on to a nice article of stats from our colleagues in the UK. Interesting comparison between adventure activities and auto accidents.

I particularly was interested by this idea:

"Once this is clear, it becomes apparent that much of our work on health and safety is misdirected. Worse, we discover that by avoiding certain activities on the grounds that they are ‘dangerous’ we are inadvertently exposing our young people to much greater risks elsewhere, albeit ones which get less attention from the media."
