Safety - Safe Systems & Safer Practices
The definition of Safety in its simplest form is about not setting up ways to cause harm to self or others.
Using a Safety Approach (rather than Safety Avoidance) you can:
- Manage Safe Systems for persons
- Lead person(s) from Safer Practices

The newsletter clipping to the right - yes, it's 1999 - hints at my background.
It shows how long I've been around safety, nature, and first aid.
Actually, I can take you back to the late 1960s and early 1970s, when I worked at a summer day camp, a summer residential camp, and all season playground programs.
I draw from all of these experiences - and the many that followed - to develop the resources I make available on the website.
PS, my outdoor nickname is Hobbit.
