Why it's important to report incidents
Submitting an incident report is crucial. It’s a way to capture the details of an incident while they’re still fresh in everyone’s mind. A report allows the Safety & Security team to investigate, follow up, and prevent future incidents. If you need time off, compensation, or accommodations after the incident, the report will help support your claim.
Additional steps if the incident is serious
A serious incident might involve a major injury or death, a fire or explosion that had the potential to harm people, a structural or equipment collapse, or the major release of a hazardous substance. In the event of a serious injury, call for appropriate emergency services, then notify security so they can secure the scene. Security is to notify the Safety & Security department immediately who will notify WorkSafeBC as necessary.
Steps for supervisors:
What happens after you submit an incident report
When you submit an incident report, your supervisor and the manager of Environmental Health & Safety will review it.
In the case of injuries requiring medical attention, the EHS Manager or a Health & Disability coordinator will contact you to support you.
Certain incidents require investigation to prevent recurrence, and you may also be contacted to participate in these investigations.
