The Reporting, Analysis and Prevention of Incidents in Demining (RAPID) database records accidents and incidents involving field employees at the workplace. It was designed by the GICHD upon request from UNMAS.
RAPID aims to encourage changes in work practice and to develop safer tools and protective equipment in order to prevent future accidents. Its comprehensive approach makes it unique and different to existing databases.
The GICHD manages this database and requests cooperation from all programmes and where applicable, demining organisations to report on accidents/incidents. This should be done via the relevant excel sheet which can be downloaded and sent to rapid(at)gichd.org.
