Research in lifesaving - Developing the plan
At present, in the aquatic industry incidents are reported using one or more first aid and/or incident report forms that are facility specific. Some facilities use forms that gather a great deal of information, others have no minimum requirement of information. In addition, there is no evidence of this information being cross referenced between centres for comparison. As a result there is very little evidence to describe the extent of injuries/incidents that occur in commercial aquatic facilities.
