Accident reporting and the advantages of the all-in-one App from Be-Safe
The process of systematically gathering and recording details on mishaps, near misses, or negative occurrences that happen at work is known as incident reporting. UK employers are obligated to implement an incident reporting system under the Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 law (RIDDOR).
Occupational health and safety management must include a method for reporting various workplace occurrences. It gives interested parties, including both employees and stakeholders, the chance to spot dangers, threats, or any other potential issues before they have a chance to get worse.
Legacy systems relied on manual labour, paper and pen, and conventional filing methods.
This then changed to electronic documents and spreadsheets that continued to rely on manual data entry from actual event report forms. Real-time incident reporting was practically unattainable before the advent of the digital age.
Mobile accident reporting—and subsequently real-time incident reporting—can now be made available and inexpensive for mainstream businesses thanks to digitalisation, widespread use of mobile phones, and cloud computing. As soon as an accident occurs, employees can report it immediately using their mobile phones.
Managers and shift supervisors are better able to respond quickly to accidents and put preventative measures in place when they don’t have to wait until the end of a shift to learn about them. In the long run, this can help organisations save time, money, and effort.
With mobile incident reporting, employees can record dangers and occurrences and include a timestamp. Even though the issue might not call for urgent action, the timing can be useful. Businesses can better analyse and assess their health and safety practices by providing a clear timeline of events, personnel involved, and actions taken.
