Important Facts about the Online Hazard / Incident Reporting & Investigation System
The online reporting system, developed in-house in conjunction with ISTS, was launched on 25th November 2010 by OHSW&IM Services to replace the paper-based reporting system.
Since implementation, there has been a 47% increase in overall reporting compared with the same period for the previous year (Jan-Sept 2010). A combination of hazard and near miss reports comprise of 35% of the overall online reporting.
The online reporting system provides a user-friendly and efficient way to report incidents and hazards, record investigation findings and corrective action to prevent a recurrence. All personnel involved in the reporting workflow are kept informed, via an auto-generated email notification, of the status of the report, action taken or planned and when the report is finalised.
Quality of investigation information has improved from the paper-based process as the system navigates the user through a series of screens designed to capture all aspects of an investigation. This will continue to be a focus area for further improvement to mitigate risk.
Reports are closed by OHSW&IM Services administrators ONLY after confirming that recommended and appropriate corrective action has been completed.
