ABSTRACT

This study compares risk assessments of school field trips between Korea and the UK. The safety management of Korean schools is comparable to that of UK schools, but several differences were discovered. First, Korean schools encourage parents’ participation as a formal element of risk assessment, while UK schools emphasize professional assistance from external institutions. Second, UK schools assess all on-site activities during school field trips, whereas Korean schools assess only the safety and hygiene of the facilities. Third, Korean assessors check whether the facilities follow safety regulations, but UK assessors control residual risks based on quantitative risk estimation. Fourth, the adventure activities licensing system in the UK requires all outdoor activity facilities to release their safety information to the public.
