In this infographic we present UPLOADS project incident reporting statistics nationally and for each State and Territory including program participation days, total incidents, incident rates, incident severity ratings and most frequently reported contributory factors.
Incidents are influenced by multiple factors, with the data presented a reflection of those variations rather than a comparative analysis. This highlights the importance of a strong commitment to quality data collection, enabling individual operators to tailor program development and risk management strategies to match their unique needs.
