Evaluation of injury prevention strategies required

Input required from Led Outdoor Activity practitioners

The UPLOADS project is a major collaboration between the Australian led outdoor activity sector, the University of the Sunshine Coast, and Federation University. The ultimate aim is to better understand and prevent the injury incidents that occur during led outdoor activities. Click here to see our valued project partners and funders.

As part of the UPLOADS project, we would like to invite you to participate in a survey to evaluate incident prevention strategies that were developed by the sector based on the UPLOADS incident data. Specifically two workshops were held involving a range of stakeholders from the outdoor activity sector in which they developed incident prevention strategies based on the analysis of UPLOADS incident data.

To complete the process we now need led outdoor activity practitioners to evaluate the strategies. This involves completing a survey, which will take approximately 1 hour.

All organised outdoor activity stakeholders from the following organisations are invited to participate:

  • Primary schools
  • Secondary schools
  • Outdoor education/recreation providers
  • Outdoor training organisation (e.g. RTO, TAFE, University)
  • Outdoor professional/peak bodies
  • Workplace health and safety regulator
  • Government agencies

Your input is critical to ensure that the strategies that are proposed are practical, appropriate and relevant for the sector

Please read the Participant Information Sheet for further information. If you wish to participate please download the Strategy Evaluation Survey and email the completed survey to uploadsproject@usc.edu.au.
