Risk Management

WHAT IS RISK MANAGEMENT? 

Risk Management is simply identifying potential minor and major hazards on a trip and putting in place a plan to avoid or manage that risk. 

Whilst acknowledging that there are inherent risks in all travel that can never be totally eliminated, we endeavour to minimise any risks or dangers that have the potential to lead to any more than a reasonable level of physical or emotional distress for our clients, staff and partners.  

 

Thanks to our pre and post trip Risk Management strategies, World Youth Adventures has an unblemished safety record.


We recognize that part of the enjoyment and excitement of adventure travel style school trips is derived from the innate risks incurred by travelling and undertaking activities beyond the levels of safety normal at home or school.


That’s why we have a strong commitment to running safe school expeditions and tours, ensuring that our experienced guides are fully aware of the demands of travelling in both urban and remote regions with young people.

Whether your school is travelling to Tasmania or the Himalaya, they will receive a detailed Risk Management document that will detail both minor and major risks and how we plan to keep your students and staff safe.

Our school expeditions draw upon an unrivalled amount of field experience from our parent company, the World Expeditions, and their extensive operational team.


World Expeditions operated their first trek in Nepal in 1975 and now operates active and adventure style trips to every continent on earth.

We go above and beyond the norm to ensure the information on risk supplied is thorough, covering areas from environmental to health, human behaviour to general travel hazards plus more.


The information will be presented in an easily digestible document that can be readily provided or referred to.
