Every incident, accident or near miss provides an opportunity to review your processes, make changes or train the teams – to ensure your people are as safe as possible. Making it easy and quick for your team to report incidents is an essential element for success. A mobile app will make your incident reporting quicker and more consistent.
Mobile apps: the efficient way to report incidents
To ensure workplace safety, it is important to report any incidents or near-misses as soon as they occur. Documenting and recording evidence immediately after the event has occurred, onsite and while any witnesses and involved individuals are around, will provide invaluable data to improve everyone’s safety. It will be particularly useful if a follow-up by insurance or the government is needed.
The easiest way to achieve this? Make your incident reporting possible via a mobile app.
Mobile app for incident reporting
Immediate evidence recording
Most businesses already use some kind of paper or digital forms to record incidents across their facilities. However any delay to retrieve the forms means potential loss of important information. A witness to the incident, a person who was involved in the incident, or personnel who arrive quickly on the scene, can provide the most accurate information about the event that occurred. With the forms available on anyone’s mobile phone or work tablet, the incident can be logged immediately and shared with the right teams in real-time.
Safety officers or any other present employee can quickly fill out a digital form to provide a full picture of the incident. Directly from the incident site, they can quickly record data such as location, cause, affected employees and witnesses.
Easy to use tool to gather and share incident data
Using a mobile app also means that users can easily snap evidence pictures and attach them to the report on a click. This saves a lot of time for everyone, and improves quality of documentation. A native mobile app is user-friendly and easy for anyone to use. In 2 seconds, the user can generate a full report and automatically share it with the right team members.
Automated notifications by email ensure that those who need to be informed are notified, instantly.
All the latest data in one place
If reporting requirements change, the system administrators can easily update the forms anytime. Employees will always be able to retrieve the latest updated form, stored on the cloud. Customize the incident reporting form for a variety of needs: worker compensation, location services, medical treatment and other important accident report and injury details.
How many incidents or near-misses take place across your different sites or teams? With all the information securely stored online and searchable, you can easily analyze it using smart dashboards. With your incident data stored in one place you have real-time information at your fingertips, helping you to make the right decisions to make the workplace safer for everyone.
