Incident Reporting – Investigating the Who, What, Why, Where, When and How?
The key objective for investigating and reporting incidents in the workplace is to understand how an incident occurred and to prevent it from reoccurring. Incident reporting is a critical component of any Safety Management System (SMS). Incidents need to be logged and investigated correctly and corrective actions, assigned, tracked and implemented.
An effective Safety Management System, guides users through root cause analysis, answering the vital
questions; Who, What, Why, Where, When and How? Your Safety Management System should enable
you to:
• Identify Contributing Risks and Hazards
• Identify Inadequate Systems and Procedures
• Identify Training Requirements
• And Allow you to create, assign and track corrective Actions
Incident reporting is a core myosh module that integrates with over 100 other optional cloud based modules. The myosh Mobile app simplifies reporting onsite, online or offline.
Data Dashboards allow users to quickly identify trends and target performance for improvement. Data collected enables users to analyse Incidents by Site, Classification, Status, Resolution Rate and more. This core module also facilitates Compliance with Standards AS/NZ 4801 and, ISO45001, the impending New Global Standard for Work, Health and Safety.
