Incident and Accident Reporting


Incident and Accident Reporting

​​​​​A formal accident and incident reporting procedure helps employees to record essential details immediately after an event. ​​​


Regardless of your industry, an incident or accident report is a valuable tool for managing your business risks. A standardized form can:

  • Capture complaints and incidents where and when they occur before they become claims
  • Establish a defense for claims that are presented years after an accident or loss event
  • Help to analyze causes of accidents and loss events
  • Be used for recommending risk improvements to prevent similar accidents in the future
  • Identify weaknesses in current risk management policies and procedures, and help prevent more serious losses from occurring.

Learn about risk management best practices and details to record after an incident or accident.
