Reducing Risk Exposure - A Risk Management Webinar

July 28 2020

Every trail user has their own level of acceptable risk. If a trail user subjectively perceives that risks are lower than their acceptable level of risk, then they will take additional risks (i.e. shortcuts) or vice versa if the user perceives risks are high, they will behave safely in order to avoid any subsequent losses, injury, etc. Which makes it almost impossible to eliminate all risks. However, trail owners, engineers, contractors and maintenance staff can design, build and maintain trails in a way that minimizes risk exposure.

This 1½ hour webinar will identify the obligations trail owners/managers have to trail users and provide an overview of newly developed tools available from the Ontario Trails Council and how these tools can assist in meeting said obligations.

Date: Tuesday, July 28th from 10:00am to 11:30 EDT

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar participants will be able to:

1. Describe their obligations to trail users under the Occupiers Liability Act;
2. List the various parameters used for each of the trail classifications;
3. Explain the importance of trail inspection, timely maintenance and documentation of the inspection and work completed.

Target Audience:

1. Trail managers – either municipal, conservation authority, private sector.
2. Front line maintenance staff and volunteers.
3. Organization decision makers.

This webinar will be ideal for managers and staff from smaller organizations who want to learn more about the risks associated with trail maintenance.
