What is an employee incident form / report?
If you are a healthcare facility such as a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living you would use this form to record details of an unusual event that occurs at the facility such as an injury to a patient in the facility.
The purpose of this report is for business to use for employee incidents or accidents in order to document the exact details of the occurrence while they are fresh in the minds of those who witnessed the event. The information in your report might prove to be useful in the future if issues arise from the incident that might cause liability issues with your company.
To maintain a safe and healthy campus/work environment, a thorough accident investigation should be undertaken as soon as practical after an accident or incident in order to initiate and support corrective and/or preventive actions.
The Accident/Incident Report and Investigation Form should also be completed by the employee’s supervisor with the employee. The report requires the signature of the supervisor and employee. For accidents or incidents which require medical attention, or lost or restricted work, the report must be signed by the CEO or president of company. Completed reports are to be sent to the Director of Human Resources or similar business division who should follow up with any recommended actions.
