Safety Consulting

Regardless of the outcome of legal proceedings, when a fatality occurs in an outdoor program due to lack of adequate safety protocol best practices, everyone loses.  Friends and family of the deceased, the company, organization, or academic institution involved, and the program or outing in which the fatality occurred.  The great tragedy is that with very few exceptions, these deaths are completely preventable.
