Lessons Learned Group

What we Are

The Lessons Learned Group (LLG) is a small group of professionals and practitioners in adventure activities, brought together by a common aim to incorporate into ongoing good practice any lessons that can be learned from outdoor incidents. The Group’s intention is to present an objective summary of an incident together with possible lessons. We do not aim to allocate blame or responsibility and our reports represent the views of individual members of LLG and not of any official body. Information not currently available to us may render our comments inaccurate and the lessons identified may or may not have influenced the actual outcome. Any report published has been agreed by at least four individuals within the Group as meeting these aims.


Who we Are

LLG comprises the following:

Clive Atkins Freelance local authority Outdoor Education Adviser, Consultant and Inspector. Chartered Member of IOSH.
Marcus Bailie Head of Inspection, Adventure Activities Licensing Service. Formerly Plas-yBrenin and Tiglin.
Bob Barton Outward Bound Trust Safety Adviser. Formerly Glenmore Lodge and Principal, Outward Bound Eskdale.
John Cousins Executive Officer of Mountain Training UK. Former Director of Training at Plas-yBrenin.
David Crossland Largely retired but previously AALA Senior Inspector and Head of Coventry’s Outdoor Education Service.
Nick Gair Visiting Professor, Carnegie Faculty of Sport and Education, Leeds Metropolitan University.


Membership of the group may be expanded in future, but the intention is to stay small enough to achieve effective internal communication.

Members all agree that there is a need for the identification and dissemination of ‘Lessons Learned’ and that the existing routes of information flow were limited in their success. The Group aims to support the case for continuing adventure, and for informed risk management rather than the elimination of all risks.
