Avoiding injury riding backwards

I have reached the extent of what I can do riding backwards in my little training frame. I have a feel for it now and it is time I tried in a bigger space before I end up learning to stop automatically after one revolution.

I will put on all my protective gear and I am contemplating a big back pad including anti penetration layers in case of falling backwards. My main worry is falling back on the uni and getting a pedal in the back.

Can anyone offer advice on techniques to ensure unplanned dismounts while learning to ride backwards are as safe a possible?
