Managing Health and Safety on International School Trips
Hunter-Jones, John; Hunter-Jones, Philippa
Management in Education, v21 n1 p8-14 2007
Organizing international school trips can be a demanding experience because of the age of the participants, the unfamiliar surroundings and the excitement associated with the foreign trip. As many organizers are full-time teachers, without a background in the travel sector, the pressures can be even greater. The need to anticipate potential risks to the health and safety of pupils and comply with the law can be one of the more difficult aspects of the organization. Many of these risks and legal demands are often present in the organization of international travel by tour operators. Drawing upon the wider travel scene, this paper outlines the potential risks attached to international school trip participation, suggests measures to reduce such risks, details the legal framework for schools in England and Wales and indicates a range of information sources available to the trip organizer.
