Paul Salmon and I have just published an new article in The Conversation which argues that safety critical sectors such as road, rail and aviation can learn a lot from the UPLOADS Project when it comes to learning from accidents.
Since the launch of the UPLOADS National Trial, the outdoor sector in Australia has had an standardised, national approach to incident reporting underpinned by a systems approach. This approach supports the identification of the complex web of factors which contribute to accident causation. Moreover, by contributing data to the UPLOADS National Incident Dataset, organisations are supporting sector-wide learning and accident prevention.
