Below you can find links to information about incidents, accidents and near misses that have happened in adventure activities or similar, closely related activities. Many of these appeared on the former Adventure Activities Licensing Service (AALS) website as InfoLog entries.
They will be of use to anyone who is interested in adventure activities, as a provider, user, enthusiast, organiser etc. This information is updated from time to time with safety developments and recommendations from within the outdoor community. Often an entry results from specific incidents and our intention is to look at the outcomes and implications of these and not at the incidents themselves.
The entries have been complied by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority, with the assistance of the AALS as part of its advisory role. Licensing Service inspectors and others may refer to this guidance as illustrating good and up-to-date practice.
Note - not all of the old InfoLog entries have been transferred to this site. Some entries have been removed for various reasons such as being out of date, superseded or replaced by published guidance. Items for removal were agreed with AALS.
