Incident reporting and investigation can help to make your workplace safer. An investigation should concentrate on identifying contributing factors for each incident and control measure that can be put in place to prevent similar incidents in the future
If an incident is "serious" legislation in each state requires that you preserve the incident scene and notify the regulator immediately. Detailed information on incident investigation, and your reporting requirements are outlined in section 4.3 of the BIZassistManual.
Effective Safety Management processes are a vital component of any organisation, and Workplace Incident Response is essential to eliminating and/or minimising the impact of incidents in the workplace.
