How can incident reporting help your business?
With incident management there is usually a strong emphasis on meeting Health and Safety, compliance and other legal obligations, including:
Safeguarding staff and the public
Incident management and reporting, including ‘near misses’ are key factors in identifying what needs improving in a business. It can have a positive impact on the welfare of staff and stakeholders, including the prevention of future incidents.
Many organisations have legal obligations to share information on certain incidents with outside agencies. Aside from complying with the law or best practice guidance, this enables an organisation to demonstrate their commitment to a healthy, transparent, learning culture.
