Incident Report Form Templates
When do you need to report an incident?
Organisations should use incident report forms as soon as an incident happens, no matter how big or small. This includes
accidents, near-misses, and all events that result in an injury. When reporting internally, this may be as simple
as recording details of the incident for future record, and may not require any additional actions to be taken.
For notable incidents (incidents which resulted in death or serious injury), organisations should also complete a more detailed
investigation. You may also need to complete and submit additional reporting to their local regulatory authority.
What kind of form should I use to report an incident?
An incident report is a form or template that should be completed after an incident has occurred. Incident report forms are
usually quite simplistic, allowing for quick collection of data to summarise an incident. They are usually completed
soon after it has occurred.
If further investigation into an incident is required, an organisation can use an Incident Report - Full investigation template
to collect additional information about an incident, as well as suggest corrective actions to prevent similar incidents
