Risk Management and Optimum Participation

Prevention is a key aspect of risk management. Since 1997, Pinnacle Pursuits has worked in all types of outdoor and indoor settings as well as a variety of unique venues as part of programming for youth and adults all over the world. Part of our reputation has been built on our impeccable track record of safety and therefore we are committed to ensuring that our programming follows strict risk management standards and protocol. We focus on three key areas of safety: physical, emotional and social safety. Our approach is strength-based to ensure that all areas of safety are optimized.

As with all Pinnacle Pursuits programs, we promote optimal participation, which is facilitated by encouraging each individual to participate at their personal best. It is our goal to provide meaningful challenges to participants of all levels and abilities.
