Risk Management of Oceanfront Resort Operationsby Rose T. Pfund, Univ of Hawaii, Sea Grant Coll, Program, Honolulu, HI, USA,
Abstract: The perception of high incidences of accidents related to open ocean recreational activities in Hawaii and the need for developing educational programs on water safety for resident and non-resident users of coastal sites and facilities first motivated this risk management study. Additionally, the importance of tourism to Hawaii's economy and the linkage between tourism and the state's oceanic environment, the involvement of several hotels in litigations stemming from open-water accidents, and the cooperation of the Hawaii Hotel Association also contributed to the decision to survey hotels as a unique group. This paper discusses the survey methods and results.
