Wednesday Work Tips

Reporting Incidents & Injuries

When an incident occurs, notification and reporting of it is key. Providing these notifications allow us to respond to an incident quickly if needed, investigate hazards, and ensure that we are providing our employees with a safe workplace. If we are not made aware of incidents occurring, we cannot track patterns, realize trends, and discover anomalies that will help us to provide improvements.

  • Damage to: Equipment, Property, etc.
  • Injuries: Sprained ankle, twisted back, pulled muscle (something that you work through but doesn’t require additional treatment at the time). First Aid Only Situations, Medical Treatment Needed, etc.
  • Utility Hit: Any hit to a utility … doesn’t need to be damaged, Motor Vehicle Accident, Stolen Equipment, etc.
  • Near Miss: Something Almost Happens
  • Incidents should be reported immediately to your site Foreman/Superintendent.
  • What’s an Incident? Simply put, an incident is anything that happens outside the ordinary. If something happens then a notification needs to be done.
