Incident Investigation and Reporting Program

  • NC Employee Incident Report: This report must be used to report the incidents and near hits immediately to supervisors and no later than 24 hours after the incident. An incident is an undesired event which resulted in personal injury, damage to property, or loss of process or material. A near hit is an incident where no property was damaged and no personal injury sustained, but where damage and/or injury easily could have occurred given a slight shift in time or position.
  • NC Supervisor Incident Investigation Report: Supervisors will work with staff (investigation team) and the Program Administrator to determine the direct and root causes of the incident. Then the investigation team will determine corrective actions to address each of these causes and implement these corrections. The Supervisor will obtain the Managers signature and forward to the Program Administrator.
  • NC Witness Statement Form: Within 24 hours, the manager or supervisor will begin interviewing employees who were present prior to or after the incident and others who are familiar with the related process or work practices. All individuals will be interviewed separately and must complete this form.
  • NC Annual Incident Evaluation Report: The Program Administrator must review the program annually and submitted this form to senior management.
