Improper application is an important cause of failure. They can also fail when they breakdown from environmental exposure or from poor
construction (e.g., older version knockoff). Always check your
equipment before heading out and replace anything questionable.
Practice with any tool before you need it for a real emergency.
Vehicles and driving are statistically the most dangerous thing that you can do in an outdoor program. As a result programs have extensive risk management protocols around vehicles and driving. But vehicles hazards aren't just associated with driving, what about when your groups come in contact with cars and roads in situations like where trails cross busy roads? Isn't this also a potentially serious risk management issue? And shouldn't you have some protocols in place to reduce these risks? I say the answer to both questions to yes and I propose a Road Crossing Protocol as a tool for leaders to help reduce the hazards associated with high-risk road crossings. If your program hikes across busy roads then you really need to read this article and consider how you would deal with this serious issue.
