# Accident Probabilities – Risks and Hazards

When it comes to adventure areas, accidents are undoubtedly the biggest fear of everyone, from investors to operators, from manufacturers – builders to end-users.

“Is it risky?”, “Is it dangerous?” These questions are among the most frequently asked questions by investors and users.

At this point, it is necessary to define the concepts of risk and danger first.

Hazard can most simply be defined as “something that can do harm”. Examples of danger include altitude, lightning, or sharp edges. Risk, on the other hand, is a concept that expresses the probability of these dangers resulting in harm.

Mainly, every sport, activity, and activity performed with protective equipment like harness, etc is dangerous. Because that protective equipment is used due to the existence of these dangers, it aims to prevent risky situations.

When it comes to risk analysis, it is determined as Risk = Probability x Impact. Based on this, we can say that although it is not possible to eliminate the danger, possibility, and possible negative consequences, it is always possible to minimize the accident risks to the least.

Agreeing with the right adventure park – zipline builder and subsequently ensuring the correct progress of the business processes will mean reducing the likelihood of the occurrence of danger and the negative effects that will be encountered if it occurs. For example, while an earthquake is a danger, buying a flimsy house is a risk. Similarly, in a dangerous industry, failure to purchase products and services from a reliable company will be a huge risk.

We can list the errors caused by the manufacturer and the operator that may result in accidents under main headings as follows:

Manufacturer Defects

– Faulty design, manufacturing, assembly and maintenance,

– delayed services,

– Material fatigue,

Operator-Originated Errors

– Material fatigue,

– Full capacity calculation and application errors,

– Falling objects from height,

– Avoiding maintenance, repair, replacement, and periodic certification costs

Naturally Originated Preventable Causes

– Tree and branch fall
