The Australian Adventure Activity Standards (AAAS) detail good practice guidelines for conducting outdoor adventure activities with dependent participants. This includes managing risk and safety and providing principles for appropriate behaviours to safeguard environmental and cultural heritage. The AAS are a voluntary standard.
To clarify the AAAS are aimed at activities with “dependent participants” i.e. “a person owed a duty of care by the activity provider and who is reliant upon the activity leaders for supervision, guidance or instruction to support participation in an activity.”
