In this infographic we show the near miss and injury incidents associated with outdoor harness activities. Despite the high level of perceived risk with harness activities, our current analysis demonstrates the relative safety of harness activities in Australia.
In nearly 2 years of data, 162 injuries and 61 near miss incidents have been reported. Although the reported injury incidents were mostly minor, our analysis shows the near miss incidents have potential to be serious, severe, and even fatal.
Here we demonstrate the relationships between contributory factors for near miss and injury incidents from across the led outdoor activity system.
