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



Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section.

1. Prepare for a causal analysis

1.1 Identify, obtain and assemble background documentation to collate all relevant facts and information that may guide and contribute to the causal analysis.

1.2 Identify relevant personnel and request them to provide input to the causal analysis.

1.3 Identify and assemble other relevant sources of information regarding injury causation.

1.4 Identify, specify and prepare methods and tools to be used in the analysis.

2. Identify the contributing factors involved in causing injury

2.1 Review relevant information sources to determine contributing factors typically involved in causing injury.

2.2 Observe activities and review if needed.

2.3 Conduct interviews with relevant personnel.

2.4 Review contexts in which the activities are commonly conducted.

2.5 Analyse components and aspects of activities which appear to be associated with greater risk of injury in detail.

2.6 Record data using organisational analytical tools in order to compile inputs to the analysis.

2.7 Determine, validate and record final list of contributing factors involved in injury causation by cross referencing results from all causal analysis activities.

3. Undertake a root cause analysis

3.1 Determine root causes of injury in the activity through further analysis of the final list of contributing factors in the light of contextual information.

3.2 Determine, validate and record list of root causes of injury.

4. Recommend countermeasures

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

4.2 Develop countermeasures from first principles, in consultation with subject matter experts, where no proven countermeasure can be identified.

4.3 Prepare written and oral causal analysis report, including details of recommended countermeasures, and deliver to decision makers for consideration.
