About this book

Leisure and recreational use of the countryside continues to increase, as do the often conflicting demands of a wide range of users. Managing Visitor Safety in the Countryside is a completely up to date guide for the owners and managers of open spaces, both urban and rural. It is produced by the Visitor Safety in the Countryside Group and is firmly based on their practical experience. Members of the group include RSPB, National Trust, English Heritage, Historic Scotland, Forestry Commission, British Waterways, Environment Agency, National Trust for Scotland, Natural England, Cheshire East Council, Peak District National Park, Woodland Trust, and the Royal Parks. The guiding principles and practical risk management techniques covered in this book have proved their worth in practice and have been endorsed by the Health and Safety Executive and recognised by courts as the basis for sensible risk management. The guiding principles have been adapted for use by the National Water Safety Forum and the National Tree Safety Group.
