Help required - safety of caving

nickwilliams:
I need to (fairly urgently) generate some evidence of the health benefits and safety of caving as an activity.

ISTR there was an article in Descent a few years ago which addressed the comparative safety of caving with other activities. Can anyone provide a citation for this article?

Links/references to anything else published on this would be welcome.

Nick.

Previous thread? https://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=24280.0

nickwilliams:
Thank you, that is useful.

Something which specifically (and quantatively) compares the risk of caving with sports such as rugby or horse riding would be most useful.

mudman:
Have you seen this: https://startcaving.com/caving-guides/safety?
There are some stats and probabilities as well as a comparison table.

The title pages of the last 5 years worth of Descent give no clues to such an article.  The latest issue has an article on 25 years of rescue but it focuses on caving stats.
