Reporting Incidents

Post by smoggysaint » Mon Jul 09, 2018 3:00 pm

Hi All,

I have come across a job advert where the client is requesting an advisor/manager to meet certain kpi's in their role.
The kpi's include a reduction in RIDDOR reportable incidents. Now i'm all for companies that are looking to improve their H&S standards and for ISO certification to be met the standard includes the term"continual Improvement". However surely they becomes an element of not reporting for fear of going above their yearly quota. I'm a firm believer in internal reporting of incidents/near misses/ accidents being encouraged to learn from the incident and ensure it doesn't happen again. If workers are encouraged to work to site rules/RAMS/SOP's which all add to a safe management system this will surely drive down incidents therefore achieving a reduction in reporting incidents.
As for reporting under RIDDOR surely this is a legal requirement and should be reported when the requirements to report are met.

Any thoughts/comments etc.

Thanks in advance

Hi Smoggy. :wave: Hope you're having a good weekend so far.

There are past posts on this sort of topic which you can troll through until people come in when they have a moment.
