When you attend a talk you will receive a copy of Henry’s Accident Reduction card plus a Safety Rescue card

The Accident Reduction card provides you with an accident reduction framework, a ‘weapon’, to help you fight human factors’ distractions which are the origin of most accidents.

Avalanche experts have shown that education is not enough to reduce the chance of an accident. There’s overwhelming proof that we all need help applying the basics to be safe – and thus have more fun. The good news – you do not need to be perfect to be safe.

The Safety Rescue card  reminds you of the most important things to do in the event of an avalanche accident.

Come to see Henry present The In-depth Talk at Ellis Brigham. The talk lasts 90 minutes with a short time for questions.

This in-depth talk builds on the Essentials talk and goes in-depth into

  • How avalanches are triggered
  • The Human Factor

How avalanches are triggered

We discuss the latest thinking and theory on how and why avalanches are triggered. This talk uses graphics and video to show you how avalanches can be triggered by one person weighing just 60Kg. Understanding why this happens will help you reduce your risk of being caught.

The Human Factor

We discuss the latest lessons from recent research on the Human Factor and how it applies to decision making and risk taking in the backcountry and off-piste skiing. Why it is that people who should know better, still get caught out in avalanches?
