Accident Investigation: Supervisor's Accident Investigation Mobile App
The Supervisor's Accident Investigation OSHA reports app should be filled out by the injured employee, supervisor and any witness to a workplace accident.
How does it work?
Supervisors should complete this OSHA form as quickly as possible after workplace accidents have occurred. The incident report form isn't about fault finding, instead, it's about creating a record of the facts. Obtaining signed statements in the workplace as soon as possible following an accident ensures that the employer has an accurate account of how the injury occurred. The OSHA form should be saved according to OSHA recordkeeping requirements to ensure accurate reporting for all occupational injury situations.
The Supervisor's Accident Investigation OSHA reports app is important in helping to eliminate hazards and prevent the accident from recurring by making it possible to develop safe work practices. While it is ideal to have this incident reporting form filled out as soon as the report of injury has occurred, it should always be put off by management if immediate medical care is required. Once all medical procedures have been completed, the supervisor's and managers can complete the form and sign off.
