Abstract

The goal of this project was to compare possible risk factors associated with selected High Adventure Recreational Activities and create possible risk mitigation strategies from these comparisons. Our research involved gathering information on risk management, injury statistics, and participant behavior trends. The final result was recommendations to CPSC about potential risk mitigation strategies and possible improvements to their methods of collecting and analyzing nationwide injury data.
