The emergency exit to outdoor learning...
Juliet,A beautiful quote and always one to remember. I put myself out there all the time to risks, some are calculated, yes. But because, as your quote says, not to risk is not to live. I prefer living.Joel
Hi Joel and Happy New YearI found the quote in an unknown book, "Face Dancing" by Neil Gresham. It was published in 1993 after Neil's girlfriend, Rachel Farmer, died tragically young, aged 22. She slipped from a walkway in France whilst on a rock climbing holiday. At the time Rachel was the most outstanding female climber of her generation, a medical student and all-round decent person. The little book is mostly photos, quotes and little snippets of information about Rachel's life. It is a beautiful tribute.
Hi JulietI have come across this quote a number of times including at the front of our risk assessment and operating procedures manual! It is always listed as source or author unknown. I haven't yet come across a reference to it.
Hello AliHow refreshing to see this quote in a RA manual. I find the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents a useful reference point. They advocate practice that is "as safe as necessary, rather than as safe as possible".Have a healthy, happy and safe New Year!!!
