With the Outdoor Safety Retail Partnership (OSRP) now officially underway, Mountain Safety Council (MSC) chief executive Mike Daisley is proud to announce that Kathmandu has confirmed its statement of intent to join the OSRP. The OSRP has been designed to give those exploring the outdoors a clear and consistent message about their role in staying safe in the outdoors.

“Kathmandu confirming their intent to join the OSRP is very exciting. They bring a huge amount of insight and expertise to this joint initiative.”

“I need to reiterate how brilliant it’s been to see major retailers putting their commercial competitiveness to one side in the interests of consistency. This allows the participant, who is the focus for us, to receive a clear safety message regardless of where they happen to visit,” he said.

“The wider outdoors community — both international and domestic- are the ultimate benefactor of this partnership. There are a range of resources and tools that are already on the cards to show up in-store and online this year.”

“The OSRP is designed to focus the discussion in-store and online, one that is consistent and easy to understand what’s required to make it home after a great trip,” Daisley concluded.

Kathmandu’s Marketing Manager — Brand, Tim Loftus was proud to announce Kathmandu joining the ORSP safety partnership.
