Workplace Incident Reporting Software: Best Tips, Setup & Review 2019

A great deal of incidents that happen could have been prevented. Empowering your workforce with Incident Reporting software tools to report and manage incidents in the workplace can lead to a massive reduction of future incidents occurring in the first place. An effective incident reporting system enables all workers from employees to contractors and visitors to be fully empowered to report all incidents that they witness, are involved in or result from their activities in the workplace. Incidents might range from an injury or illness through to property damage, environmental incidents, near misses and security incidents.

Here we go over the different ways and options to drive your incident reporting

Incident Reporting Software: Form Options

Incident Reporting all starts with a form. But rather then presenting a giant incident report form filled with lots of questions and fields, the better option is to filter down the options with a smart form. Asking qualifying questions at the start such as what type of incident has occurred, what as the nature of the incident, was anyone harmed in the incident? these can further narrow down what type of form fields to show the staff member for the full report form. For example, if no one was harmed in the incident, the next qualifying options might ask about whether there was property damage or a security related issue in order to show a property damage incident report form or a security incident report form.

If someone was harmed in the incident, it might be further broken down by injury or illness, was there lost work time or medical treatment only?
