Get involved by using the UPLOADS Software Tool or UPLOADS Lite for at least a 12 month period to collect information about near misses, incidents and participation rates. Organisations are asked to contribute incident and participation data to the national database on a three monthly basis. Organisations, participants and staff cannot be identified from the data sent to the research team for analysis.
The UPLOADS project and the National Incident Dataset rely on your continued involvement, so organisations are encouraged to continue contributing for as long as possible. The research project has received ethics approval from the University of the Sunshine Coast (approval no A/13/454).
The findings from the national database will analysed by the research team and communicated to the sector annually. The national database will allow the sector to better understand the real risks associated with different types of outdoor activities.
Organisations contributing to the dataset will also be able to request reports from the national database on specific issues to assist them in formulating risk management strategies. For example, a report could be produced on all ‘high ropes’ near misses and incidents in the national database.
