UPLOADS PrIMe Evaluation

UPLOADS Preventing Incidents Method

Posted on 01.07.2021

UPLOADS is currently evaluating the UPLOADS Preventing Incidents Method (PrIMe) and are looking for participants who are involved in safety management, program design, and/or the development of safety interventions within organisations that deliver LOA.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate six different safety interventions for a series of injuries sustained during a hiking activity.  The hiking safety interventions were developed by LOA practitioners using one of three different safety intervention methods. The evaluation will provide an understanding of which of the three methods is best equipped to develop safety interventions in LOA.  To participate, you will be required to complete a postal survey to evaluate the incident prevention strategies.
