Good companies take care of their employees, no questions asked. Good companies take care of their employees not only to follow the letters of the law, but because it’s good for a business to take care of its primary capital and investment: its people.
It is a reality that accidents can and may occur at anytime, anywhere despite many safety measures being implemented. This is why insurance companies continue to thrive even in harsh economic climates. Proper documentation of these incidents is a crucial step for protecting both the employee and the company.
Incident management software
There is such a thing as incident management software
. Incident management software will give you both a broad and a detailed picture of incident statistics through a properly set-up process using the appropriate safety incident report templates.
