Does your Program Have a Road Crossing Protocol? Should it?
We all know that driving is statistically the most dangerous activity for any outdoor program. Because vehicular accidents can be so serious, programs have specific risk management protocols--things like mandatory driver training, specific vehicle driving protocols, specialized license requirements like a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) or background motor vehicle checks on drivers. Those are just some of the proactive risk management strategies to help reduce the potential for vehicular accidents.
If driving in vehicles is so dangerous, what about other activities that expose your participants to vehicles, like crossing high trafficked roads? Isn’t this a high risk activity? I say the answer is yes. And yet many programs don’t specifically have a Road Crossing Protocol. I think road crossing has been seriously overlooked as a risk management issue for outdoor programs. Let’s take a look at at this issue and learn how you can train your staff to assess road crossings and give them a tool to manage risk when confronted with hazardous road crossings.
