Incidents in the Outdoors: Pre-existing Health Conditions

Of the more than 3000 incidents reported to the UPLOADS National Incident Dataset, 18.8% of incidents were associated with pre-existing health conditions.

This infographic shows the most frequently identified contributory factors, and relationships between factors associated with incidents involving a pre-exiting health condition.

As a sector we need to ask ourselves, what are the design, planning, and program delivery strategies we need to consider and communicate to make outdoor activities safer for those with pre-existing health conditions?  To develop strategies and interventions to reduce recurring incidents, use the Preventing Incidents Method (PrIMe).
