Incident Reporting and Investigation

Incident Reporting and Investigation

It's unrealistic to expect we will always be 100% healthy and safe. Injuries, illnesses, incidents and near misses can - and do - happen. We must take the time to review and learn from them when they happen.

Depending on the nature, severity and complexity of the incident, learning from an incident might be as simple as chatting to people afterwards so you can all try to figure out what went wrong - and what to do about it.

A more formal way to do this would be to keep an incident register and use it as part of your in-parish/in-house follow-ups.

All councils and other governing boards and committees need to ensure a reporting process is available for all of their people and that they are aware a reporting process is available!
