Workshop invitation: An expert’s guide to incident prevention

An Expert’s Guide to Incident Prevention

Workshop Series

The UPLOADS Project Team invites you to contribute to designing a practical process for translating incident data into appropriate and effective prevention strategies for LOA providers.

Designing the new process will involve two full day workshops.
Workshop 1 – 9:30am Wednesday 4th October 2017, Melbourne
Workshop 2 – 9:30am Tuesday 21st November 2017, Melbourne POSTPONED

To participate, you must work for an LOA provider, and managing incident data or developing incident prevention strategies should be part of your role. Regulators who are involved in the standardisation and/regulation of safety practices in the led outdoors are also invited to participate.

We recognise that this is a significant time commitment, however this is required to effectively translate existing knowledge into a process that is both practical and aligns with the values of the LOA sector.  The process will be integrated into the existing UPLOADS reporting system, and will be available for all LOA providers to use.  We hope that this should have significant safety benefits for the LOA sector. In addition, through the workshop, you may gain insights that you can use to improve current processes in your organisation.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

After completing my PhD in sport psychology and concussion risk, it was clear that the wonderful world of research had captured my attention. In my role at the Centre for human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems I am part of a brilliant team of researchers, working on world class research in the fields of sport and outdoor recreation, transport and infrastructure, organisational health and safety, urban planning and design, and defence security and resilience. My personal research interests are in the dynamic topic of injury management in grassroots sport. Although my PhD only skimmed the surface of this complicated issue, I look forward to a long career not only improving sport-related injury risk but also finding new ways to motivate kids to keep participating in sport and outdoor activity.
