Purpose of the Workshop

Facilitate the continuous improvement of the professional operation for adventure parks’ performance, quality, safety, and risk management, through the application of international safety standards, ACCT and ASTM.


This workshop provides adventure park operators, or individuals interested in opening an adventure park, with the necessary information on ACCT and ASTM standards, as well as examples, resources, recommendations, and ideas to help facilitate their implementation and compliance to ensure a safe operation, quality guest service and compliance with government requirements.
