The Council Services Division, S212 at the national office, sent copies of
the new Health and Safety course syllabus and video, Scouting Safety . . .
Begins With Leadership, to every district. This course introduces the
"sandwich principle," with emphasis on the importance of qualified
supervision and discipline, and features the BSA booklet A Guide to Safe
Experience has shown that the vast majority of serious injuries and
fatalities reported to the National Health and Safety Service occurred in
unit-related activities conducted off council properties. Because "safe
activities are great activities," please schedule all district volunteers
for this training in your service area. It is your responsibility to
promote safe Scouting for volunteers in your service area.
