In this infographic, the UPLOADS Project examine incidents by gender type reported to the National Incident Dataset and highlight the most frequently reported contributory factors.
In total, males have been involved in 3699 incidents, and females involved in 5005 incidents since 2018. The factors contributing to incidents are generally similar for males and females, however, the frequency of the contributory factors differ. For example, females have a higher number of incidents associated with mental/physical conditions compared to males, whereas males have a higher frequency of peer group interactions contributing to incidents. These findings support the need for further research and conversations on this important topic.
The UPLOADS Project is one of the many outdoor research projects supported by Outdoors SA as part of our ongoing work towards a professional sector.
Outdoors SA is a foundation supporter of the Understanding and Preventing Led Outdoor Accidents Data System (UPLOADS) project that is supporting ways to identify and improve practices in the outdoors. We encourage all outdoors providers in South Australia to be involved in the project and its findings.
Outdoors SA is an UPLOADS Project partner and collaborator alongside the Outdoor Council of Australia.
