By integrating risk management, accident prevention and emergency response with information on legal liability, it enables leisure service providers to devise and implement strategies aimed at reducing or eliminating injury, property damage and financial loss.

The first three phases focus on negligence, the accident process and risk management plans to reduce or eliminate injury, damage or loss. The fourth phase focuses on what to do after an incident occurs to reduce the impact of injury, damage or loss. It presents a systematic approach to safety.
