Analyse causes and identify countermeasures for injuries in physical activities

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Analyse causes and identify countermeasures for injuries in physical activities' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



1. Prepare for a causal analysis

1.1 Appropriate background documentation is identified, obtained and assembled to collate all relevant facts and information that may guide and contribute to the causal analysis.

1.2 Relevant personnel are identified and requested to provide input to the causal analysis.

1.3 Other relevant sources of information regarding injury causation are identified and assembled.

1.4 Methods and tools to be used in the analysis are identified, specified and prepared. in accordance with organisational procedures and guidelines

2. Identify the contributing factors involved in causing injury

2.1 Relevant information sources are reviewed to determine contributing factors typically involved in causing injury.

2.2 Activities are observed and/or reviewed.

2.3 Interviews withrelevant personnel are conducted with relevant personnel.

2.4 Contexts in which the activities are commonly conducted are reviewed.

2.5 Components and aspects of activities which appear to be associated with greater risk of injury are analysed in detail.

2.6 Data is recorded using organisational analytical tools in order to compile inputs to the analysis.

2.7 Final list of contributing factors involved in injury causation is determined, validated and recorded by crossreferencing results from all causal analysis activities.

3. Undertake a root cause analysis

3.1 Root causes of injury in the activity are determined through further analysis of the final list of contributing factors in the light of contextual information.

3.2 List of root causes of injury is determined, validated and recorded.

4. Recommend countermeasures

4.1 Effective countermeasures are identified where possible, for each root cause of injury, from available information and subject matter experts.

4.2 Where no proven countermeasure can be identified, countermeasures are developed from first principles, in consultation with subject matter experts.

4.3 Written and oral causal analysis report, including details of recommended countermeasures, is prepared in accordance with organisational policy and procedures and is delivered to decisionmakers for consideration.
