What a wonderful and inspiring weekend at the RGS Explore 2013 event – more thoughts on a great event to follow – but just a quick congratulations to the winners of the expedition risk management competition prize. Two wonderful projects which Training Expertise and Equip-Me are delighted to able to support through the prizes of a Biolite stove and training vouchers.
Have a look at their great websites – both wonderful examples of projects with adventure, science and public engagement at their heart – we wish them all the luck in the world…
Winning Training vouchers: Elsa Hammond – ocean row
And winning the Biolite Stove – a wonderful example of engaging cutting edge science with a wider audience: Volcano files.
Thanks very much to everyone else who entered and the very best of luck to everyone planning their trips – you will get there – keep going and have wonderful expeditions.
Below are the four key top tips on risk assessment from Dom’s talk on Saturday – we hope they help you to enjoy safe and successful travels:
Good risk assessment:
- Involves the whole team
- Is specific to the risks of YOUR project
- Is implemented in the field
- Is applied dynamically.
