Judith Hackitt’s ‘Risk Assessment’ – Playing and learning



This week I had the pleasure of attending the House of Commons to speak at the launch of the Play Safety Forum's revised guidance on Managing Risk in Play Provision. It was good to chat with a number of dedicated people who are passionate about seeing children learn important lessons about life from outdoor play. HSE was happy to support the production of the guidance and drafted a joint high level statement with Play Safety Forum, which is included in the publication.

Proposed replacement for the licensing regime for adventure activities established under the Activity Centres (Young Persons’ Safety) Act 1995 in England

Thie Consultation Document sets out proposals for replacement arrangements for adventure activities. Replacement arrangements are needed to implement the recommendation in the report Common Sense Common Safety to abolish the licensing of four specified adventure activities by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority, which will occur following the necessary legislative change at a later date.

The questions on the general characteristics of future arrangements will be of interest to providers of adventure activities, as well as their clients and others with an interest.

Responses should be sent by 21 September 2011
