This might seem counterintuitive, but all of those risky activities demonstrate perfectly why they make great health and safety people: they know that it's not about stopping the fun, but rather assessing the risks of whatever scary activity they're about to do - and applying sensible controls.
Take skiing. It's exhilarating to successfully ski from the top of a mountain to the bottom (yes, I count myself among the adrenaline junkies). But it also takes technique and control. It's not all about pointing the skis downhill; sometimes you need to side-slip to stay in control and to safely navigate the piste more slowly. Risk assessment done.
