- Adventure Tourism review - TIA has been an integral part of the Adventure Tourism and Commercial Outdoor Sector Safety Review called for by the Prime Minister in late 2009 recommendations came from this review but before we look at recommendations in groups of two ask students to find out about tourism accidents from 2013 (10 minutes) report back to class
Tourism review Recommendations:
• establish an industry-led entity to strengthen the safety management framework for the adventure tourism sector
• develop a generic safety guide
• develop additional guidance to better inform operators about their current responsibilities, particularly activity specific guidance
• ensure that better and more consistent information on the adventure tourism sector is collected, and that its collation is improved
Since then - In March 2011 we began a series of 19 nationwide workshops to update operators on the review outcomes
Seven pre-season safety workshops were held with operators to help ensure their operational safety plans were up-to-date, effective and ready for the upcoming 2010-2011 summer season. The workshops were well attended.
