InMotion June 2022 – Reporting and Investigating Workplace Incidents and Injuries

While all organisations aim to prevent workplace incidents and injuries from occurring, despite their best efforts, incidents and injuries may still happen. Incident and injury information can assist your organisation to identify and mitigate workplace safety risks and prevent similar incidents and injuries from reoccurring.

An incident is any unplanned event resulting in injury/illness to a person or, damage or loss to the environment, assets, or facilities. In this InMotion we explore the importance of reporting, recording, and investigating all incidents and injuries. We also recap on notifiable incidents, cover an organisation’s requirements to keep a register of injuries and include the key steps involved in investigating an incident.
