Safety starts with good planning

Excursion checklist

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development has developed comprehensive guidelines for planning outdoor activities for use by all Victorian schools. This includes a step-by-step process to risk management including a range of proformas to be used in your school’s excursion approval process.

Guidelines are also provided for the safe conduct of a range of outdoor activities that are often included in school programs such as abseiling, bushwalking, canoeing and overnight camping.
