Submit An Accident Report
Purpose: USPA collects information on skydiving accidents for the sole purpose of enhancing safety and preventing accidents.
Applicability: This form should be submitted in all cases in which a skydiving accident raises a safety issue, involves an injury requiring attention at a medical facility, or results in a death. It can also be used to report near-accidents or other accidents from which a lesson can be learned.
Instructions: A USPA Safety & Training Advisor or (in the absence of an S&TA) a USPA Instructor assigned by the S&TA should complete this form. In the event of a fatality involving more than one person, please use a separate form for each person.
This form will be submitted to the Director of Safety & Training at USPA Headquarters.
Confidentiality: To ensure confidentiality of both the accident victim and the reporting individual, USPA Headquarters will delete Section 2 of this form's records as soon as any necessary adjustments to the deceased member's data record is made. Data is encrypted over a secure server. Do not retain any copies of this form.
