Incident Reporting

An unbelievable number of questions arise anytime something goes wrong at the Y. How bad is it? Is anyone hurt? Whose fault was it? How do we prevent this from happening again? These questions are hard to answer without good documentation…which is precisely where incident reports come in.

Proper incident reporting is a skill that every employee at every Y should receive thorough training for. When an incident report is filled out properly it can help defuse a stressful situation and can provide the critical details needed to prevent future issues. When filled out improperly, however, an incident report can present major legal repercussions and costly miscommunication.
