January 1, 2011: Sledding Risk Management 101

As a kid, I opted to go sledding when my parents took us to the ski slopes. It’s easier than skiing, doesn’t require much in the way of specialized equipment and can be done anywhere that there is a slope and snow. When I was a kid, I never saw anyone wear a helmet for any sport (except football) as those were the days when parents sent their kids out the door in the morning to play and they didn’t come in the house until the sun set. With time and constant reports by the media about the dangers of virtually everything, kids are more strictly supervised, and everyone should be wearing helmets.
