SNKG – CHAPERT 1 – THE SNORKELING GUIDE’S RESPONSIBILITIES

snkg guida ruolo

Snorkeling, like any adventure activity, comes with its inherent risks. Participants are advised to mitigate these risks through preventative measures and the application of common sense in both planning and executing their adventures. Yet, as a Snorkeling Guide responsible for a group, your role in ensuring safety extends significantly beyond personal risk management. You are tasked with the critical duty of safeguarding the well-being of your group, necessitating additional precautions to protect all participants, including yourself.

In the role of a Snorkeling Guide, personal risk management becomes intertwined with the management of legal risks. While accidents are a regrettable aspect of life and can occur despite the most thorough precautions, they bring about the potential for legal repercussions. In the event of an incident, the injured party or their family may seek legal action, and as a guide, you could be required to prove your lack of fault. The legal landscape varies, but in many jurisdictions, a Snorkeling Guide could face legal challenges even in the absence of negligence. Therefore, a deep understanding and readiness to address these responsibilities are vital components of your role as a guide. This emphasizes not just the importance of preventative safety measures but also the need for a comprehensive approach to risk management that includes legal preparedness.
