What is Xcursion?
Every year around 20,000 injuries occur on school activities that require hospitalisation. For legal reasons, each incident must be accurately recorded and reported, but this is often done after the fact and only when questions are being asked, leaving teachers and schools exposed to liability.
With dynamic medical & emergency data always at hand, Xcursion provides fast, secure & reliable risk management and mitigation support no matter what the activity.
Founder David Gregory is an outdoor education teacher with over 16 years experience in running a range of experiential education programs.
With qualifications and extensive experience in Wilderness First Aid, risk management and crisis response, David's worked throughout Australia and Internationally in a variety of environments, managing risk and incident response.
From being a first responder, to safety officer as well as director of operations, David’s first hand experience in field operations, incident prevention/management and crisis response culminated in the development of a robust management and reporting system called Xcursion to help protect staff and participants, as well as manage and mitigate medical risks.
"I designed Xcursion to solve my own problem. I needed fast, secure access to critical student information when I was in the field. Trawling through bunches of paper to find vital pieces of information I needed to put my hands on immediately, was time consuming and only added to the risk of harm when working with students."
"As risk management has been a huge part of my work over the years, this was a simple extension of that work, finding a better way to manage medical risks. Any way we can make educational experiences easier and safer to run the better and I continue to work at the forefront of the industry to ensure we continue to deliver the best tools possible for the task."
David writes a weekly blog covering experiential educational issues as well as specific risk management topics.
