The Campaign seeks to show that life is best approached in a spirit of exploration, adventure and enterprise; to influence and better inform attitudes towards risk; to build wider recognition that chance, unforeseen circumstances and uncertainty are inescapable features of life and that absolute safety is unachievable; and to demonstrate that sensible education and preparation enable an appropriate balance to be achieved between risk & safety and achievement & opportunity.

The High Court has today handed down judgment in the case of Graham Hopps v (1) Mott MacDonald Ltd and (2) Ministry of Defence (MOD), the first reported case applying s1 of the Compensation Act 2006. The Claimant, Mr Hopps, failed in his claim against the Defendants for compensation for personal injury arising out of an incident in Basrah, Iraq, on 28.10.03, when an improvised explosive device (“IED”) was detonated as the unarmoured vehicle in which the Claimant was travelling passed by.
