Being a manager or an employer in any company, business or organization can be pretty challenging. You have to oversee all the activities of your staff and you also have to ensure that everything is running smoothly within your premises. That means you have to be aware of everything happening around you so that if something goes wrong, you are already ready for it.
You would not want to find out later on that something bad happened or something illegal happened right under your nose without knowing about it. This is why managers and employers should know how important incident reports are, as they can help them prevent those things from happening again.
What Is An Incident Report?
Incident reports capture information regarding events such as accidents, or even terminated employees who were caught performing criminal activities. Some reports involved damage to the company’s properties like loss of equipment or even theft and arson among others. The information gathered in such a report is used as evidence when it comes to filing claims with insurance companies, making police case reports and preparing legal documents about an accident at work, and many more.
