The goal is for all outdoor activity providers in Australia to use the system, and contribute data on a regular basis to be analysed, reported and disseminated to the sector. Currently, the USCAR team is conducting a trial of the prototype incident learning and reporting system. This study involves trialling a prototype of UPLOADS for a six month period.The lessons learnt during this period will be used to refine the database. The main aims of this study are:
• Refinement of the fields/structure database to improve ease of use;
• Refinement of the taxonomy of causal factors associated with outdoor activity incidents;
• Identification of any technical issues associated with the use of database; and
• Identification of the prevalence of incidents and contributing factors in the outdoor activity sector.
If you are an outdoor activity provider, and would like to participate in the trial or would like more information please click on the UPLOADS logo above or contact:
