Whether that's simply a large label on BC products stating "EXTREME RISK: Using this product without the proper knowledge, training and experience can result in death... so take an avalanche course eh!?!" or something along those lines might help.

I think what they're saying is as an industry they need to help make people aware of the potential risk involved in BC riding. I think it's a smart move, as the alternative is to wait until it comes to a head after increasing fatality rates.
