David Breashears’ Storm Over Everest – a Risk Management Case Study

Author(s): Rick Curtis
Posted: May 18, 2008

If you missed the spectacular Frontline documentary on PBS by David Breashears on the 1996 Everest tragedy you can watch the full two hour episode online at Frontline. There are also interviews with expedition members and interactive maps of the mountain and the accident. The documentary is a fantastic case study in risk management, judgment and decision making and is highly recommended as a staff training tool.
