Comments Off on Public Liability in the Australian Tourism Industry: Risk Exposure Profile and Legal Responsibilities

The premise of the project is that safety will be improved where risk exposure profiles are available for tourism industry sectors in conjunction with readily available knowledge of industry best practice and legal requirements. Hence, the purpose of the project was to identify relevant risk exposure related data and legal frameworks applicable to health and safety for the tourism industry in the states of Queensland and Victoria.

Being Bushfire Ready is a shared responsibility between the Government, fire agencies and the community. If you live, work or travel in an area where bushfires can occur, then you need to prepare a bushfire survival plan ahead of time and practise it regularly.

In Western Australia, licensing is utilised by State Government agencies to regulate the behaviour of the nature tourism industry from a number of perspectives. This study examined whether, in addition to its intended benefits, the State’s current licensing framework is creating impediments or costs for commercial nature tourism operators. Interviews with licensing agency representatives and a review of the literature pointed to licensing compliance costs as the main complaint from nature tour operators. Sources of dissatisfaction included the need for multiple licenses from multiple agencies, license security, added paperwork, and non-transferability of some types of licenses.
