Fall Incident Form Details

Incidents happen. Whether it is a slip fall on a wet floor, tripping on an uneven surface, or any other type of accident, they can and do occur in the workplace. When they do, it is important to have a process in place for recording and reporting them. A Slip Fall Incident Report Sample Form can help you to do just that. Having such a form can provide a structure for recording key information about the incident, such as when and where it occurred, what caused it, and who was involved. This information can then be used to help investigate the accident and take steps to prevent future occurrences. A sample form can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your workplace, so be sure to tailor yours accordingly.

Here are several details you might want to examine before you begin using the slip fall incident report sample.
