In addition to representing the interests of the outdoor industry, the Sport Institute has, among other things, the objective of contributing to increasing the quality and safety of outdoor sports. Associated instructors and companies are required to update their practical and theoretical knowledge every two years. The sports institute monitors the correctness of instruction and safety as well as customer friendliness and service.

Elements of the safety system include an extensive risk analysis of activities, risk management measures, registrations and checks of used materials.
In the interest of your safety, all members are required to have proper company liability insurance. The Sport Institute has a collective Business Liability insurance policy for its members through Hienveld Assuradeuren with extensive coverage.
Nature and environment
Nature and environment are automatically connected to the outdoor sports world. We work with respect for the environment. Undesirable things such as causing noise and erosion, or damaging trees and shrubs must be prevented.
Professional outdoor sport
The outdoor sports activities are supervised by qualified instructors. A great deal of attention is paid to the selection, training and (further) training of staff.
Participants in outdoor sports activities must be able to rely on the materials used. For members affiliated with the Sport Institute, the quality of the material is the assurance of a safe activity. The sports institute strictly monitors safety systems and pays special attention to the use and management of outdoor sports equipment. All material is regularly checked, so that maintenance can be carried out in time or replacement can be made on time. Furthermore, members are obliged to work with certified materials.
