Sea Kayaking: Incident Management/Risk Assessment

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

Incident Management / Risk Assessment starts the moment you think about a trip. The Olympia Mountaineers Sea Kayaking Group two part Incident Management class / Risk Assessment helps you identify risks and prevent them before they happen, but not all things go as planned so we help you figure out what to have in your bag of tricks and in your essentials that you carry with you. So when things do not go as planned the incident becomes an inconvenience and not something worse. This is by no means a guarantee that it will prevent an incident.\

This years class room portion will cover these subjects listed below.

Start at 9:00am with a goal of being done by 3:00pm if not sooner
As we did last year I would like to do a potluck lunch. No food assignments bring what you want.

1.Henry Romer will cover Circles of Defense.

2. Home work assignment reading about Heuristic Traps and The Rule of Three: Situation Awareness in Hazardous Situations. These articles will be sent via email to those that sign up for the class

3. We will have a group discussion of a Kayak trip that didn't go as planned where you as the participants find the trip either it being a personal trip, one from the news or even Sea Kayaker Deep Trouble. Out goal on this assignment is to have a discussion on what went wrong and what went right and how to avoid what went wrong.
