Incidents in the Outdoors: Campcraft Activities

Since September 14, 2018, 473 injury or illness incidents relating to Campcraft Activities have been reported.  Although, 89% of these incidents were minor in severity, 7% of the incidents were reported with a potential severity rating of serious, severe or critical.  

In addition to an overview of a subset of data we typically provide in our Infographics, such as, the types of incidents and frequently reported contributory factors, this infographic presents a PreventiMap for Campcraft related incidents.  The PreventiMap shows a network of interventions that could be explored to prevent and management campcraft related incidents.

This infographic illustrates that:

  1. Safety is impacted by the decisions and actions of everyone in the system, not just those on the frontline.
  2. Near misses and adverse events are caused by multiple, interacting, contributing factors, not just a single bad decision or action.
  3. Effective countermeasures require systemic changes.
