The ORFA is not in the business of creating “industry standards” but rather operating principles that focus on the collection and sharing of field tested “industry guidelines and best practices”. These principles are organically created through time which are adopted by the majority of the membership. They are tools to assist recreation supervisory staff in the creation of internal “policy” and/or “Standard Operating Practices (SOP)”.
ORFA best practices are developed by the industry for the industry. These best practices are considered fluid and may change without restriction to meet the current needs of the industry. They further assist members in providing safe operational approaches through peer generated direction when strict regulated obligation is not available. This information is provided as a benefit of membership. Members would be diligent to remain current and up to date on all Association generated guidelines and best practices.
