Course overview

What’s the 1st thing you think when someone gets injured at work? Probably not, “Where’s my pen?” When someone’s hurt, recording isn’t the immediate priority. Your 1st concern is making sure everyone is out of harm’s way and getting any treatment they need. But, once everyone’s safe, you do have a duty to make sure the incident is properly recorded and reported

Paperwork after a stressful event might feel like a bit of a headache, but it’s important. It helps regulatory bodies like OSHA build up a picture of hazards in your workplace and industry, meaning worker protection can be built up, too. It’s all about preventing future injuries and making the workplace safer for everyone. This is especially crucial when it comes to severe injuries.
