There has been an average of just over one fatality per year at  BGA clubs in the nine years since 2008. This is a dramatic reduction from the nine-year average of more than 5 fatalities per year from 1974-2007. The reduction stems from fewer winch accidents, successful bailing out after collision, and fewer serious accidents in other categories.
This booklet offers guidance on how everyone can help to avoid a repetition of inadvertent spins and other accidents.
