Incident reporting lets workers report an accident or a near-miss incident.
The goal is to promote safety and prevent future incidents by learning from past events. Did you know that incident reporting is one component of workplace safety?
Incident reporting helps organizations make informed decisions for employee training and safety programs. Investigations may identify training gaps and can provide businesses with a corrective action roadmap.
Train your investigative team to capture all details of the incident including:
- the location,
- date and time,
- persons involved,
- equipment used,
- nature of injuries.
Once the investigation is complete, analyze the data to identify the root cause(s). An impartial review builds employee trust and encourages safe behaviors.
