risk management 101 - eljoh sneep

Every trampoline park operator wants users to have a safe experience. Trampolining is however an activity with significant risks, with many factors influencing the overall user safety level. Therefore, every trampoline park has safety measures such as padding, netting, rules and supervision. Some use an introduction video, some a spoken instruction, some do both. Some have their visitors sign a waiver, some don’t. Not every operator applies the same measures, but every operator tries to manage the risks. This workshop aims to increase knowledge and awareness of risk management strategies by providing a theoretical framework and by allowing group conversations about everyday challenges and possible solutions.

The workshop starts with a brief introduction in the theory of risk management (5 minutes) and how this can be applied to the operation of a trampoline park (10 minutes). However, in the real world, most theories cannot be fully put to practice. The second half of the workshop is therefore reserved for a group conversation, with questions from the audience and questions from the host.

After the workshop participants should have more insight in the strengths and weaknesses in their risk management. They are able to define points of attention and know methods and best practices to achieve improvement.

15:00 - 15:55

Manufacturing Panel - What you should be asking and why it makes all the difference - Moderator: Ed Reed Panelists:
