Introduction to Practice

This section considers the role of information and education in risk control. We emphasise the need to give visitors the knowledge to adapt their behaviour to suit the environment and the conditions they will experience. This helps to encourage visitors to take more responsibility for their own safety.

The management of safety should be an integral part of your overall system to meet the needs of all your visitors. Clear, well-designed information located sympathetically at strategic locations can help to raise and maintain awareness. There are opportunities at different stages of the process.
