Following the launch of the new UPLOADS App last week, we have scheduled weekly Q&A video conference sessions that users can register to join here (you can register for one, or many sessions).
The topic of the first session, scheduled for Friday 21 September from 2-3 pm (AEST) will be “Setting up your UPLOADS Account“. Participants will be guided through the registration process and shown how to set up their organisations account, and are welcome to raise any other questions that they may have during that time.
Topics for subsequent sessions will be advertised in due course. If there is anything in particular that you would like for us to cover, please contact the UPLOADS Team.
The new UPLOADS App was officially launched via webinar on Friday 14th of September. For those unable to participate, a recording of the launch is now available.

We are now recruiting LOA organisations to use the new UPLOADS App to record incident reports, LOA participation data and action plans to address identified problems. If your organisation would like to participate, please contact us.
Clare Dallat, our incredible HDR student (who is in the final stages of thesis examination) and Executive Director of Research and Innovation, and Director of Risk Resolve at the Outdoor Education Group has been named the very deserving winner of the 2018 Charles (Reb) Gregg Wilderness Risk Management Award!
