Ladies and gentlemen Here is the 2018 Guide to Safe Scouting. I've skimmed it. The most significant change I see is all Scouters are mandatory reporters for purposes of youth protection. Here's a link from the National website, I'm also attaching a copy. I commend it to all for your critical review. Here's the link if you need to copy/paste it into local documents: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34416.pdf This is the local downloadable copy: 34416.pdf
The html and pdf versions of the Guide to Safe Scouting are now updated and available for your use on www.scouting.org. Since you are excited to go review the updates, and will appreciate the positive, proactive guidance provided here is a direct link to the Table of Contents. http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/GSS/toc.aspx (are additional commentary added) The updates are: Front Matter: Scouter Code of Conduct added. II. Aquatics Safety: The Safety Afloat section was updated. (Whitewater - Class II or above for helmets - matching industry best practice) IV. Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drugs: The entire chapter was updated and renamed. (simplified, reference Scouter Code of Conduct) IX. Insurance: The Automobile Liability Insurance section was updated. (mostly due to updated auto coverages by councils, some wording for clarity) X. Transportation: The Automobiles, SUVs, and Vans section was updated. (simplified, removed exceptions that I believe have been debated on the forum) RichardB
