Australian Activity Adventure Standards
The AAAS are the go-to tools for any guided activity with dependant individuals or groups. They were compiled by an industry reference group and tested by industry. Approved in 2019 as the key tool for risk management, these resources are owned by the Outdoor Council of Australia.
The tools are made up of the Australian Activity Adventure Standards, the Core Good Practice Guide and Activity Good Practice Guides. In addition, Guidance Notes help to inform the industry in various areas such as Severe Weather or Employment Practices in the Outdoors.
ONSWACT is working with Affinity Insurance Brokers to assist adventurous activity providers with understanding their risks and how the AAAS can assist in risk mitigation. The ActivitySafeTM Education Program will be launched in October 2022 for all Adventurous Activity providers in the country to conduct and path the way for more effective insurance solutions.
