The application of understanding

The major theme for this year’s talks, above and beyond finding out and refreshing the essentials, is “application”.

I has turn out to be increasingly clear that the vast majority of accidents are triggered by men and women not applying selection-producing and danger reduction measures. This leads to human aspects and flaws getting magnified inside a mountain atmosphere.

The remedy is a danger reduction framework that Henry and his group will be introducing and developing on across all events.

Henry Schniewind, the founder of HAT, mentioned: “We’re going to go over the most recent lessons from current analysis on the Human Element and how it applies to selection-producing and danger taking in the backcountry and off-piste skiing.

“Why is it that when there are clear clues indicating danger, folks who ought to know improved and have the standard education necessary in order to recognise these clues, nonetheless get caught out in avalanches?”

All the UK talks take spot in Ellis Brigham retailers and the Transceiver Education sessions are held in outside spaces suited to hiding and locating objects in the ground.

Occasion charges – and a discount
