Welcome to Incident Management Month
Incident Management Month was started in 2016 and takes place every year in November, to highlight the importance of improving workplace safety by promoting a culture of thorough incident management and reporting. It's a celebration of all that has been achieved, and a centre of ideas for improvement in the future.
Incident Management is a core function of the Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) profession. It's a process used widely across industries with a considerable level of EHS risk, such as Aerospace, Construction, Manufacturing or Oil & Gas.
The aim of deploying an Incident Management system or procedure is to reduce risk through appropriate levels of investigation, remediation tasks and actions taken after a worker reports that an EHS incident has occurred. These actions are what prevent a similar incident happening again in the future.
For the month of November each year, Pro-Sapien is all about Incident Management. Despite the benefits being widely recognized, many EHS departments still struggle to garner investment to either update existing, no longer fit-for-purpose software or to deploy a system for the first time.
However, having a system in place is not a silver bullet: workers have to be happy to use it, too. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that around half of all severe workplace injuries go unreported. This can be down to a number of reasons, such as fear, effort, ignorance or other.
Our annual IMM campaign aims to help EHS professionals with their - you guessed it - Incident Management. Across all of our online communications channels, we'll be bringing you a combination of helpful and insightful content to inspire ideas for improvement. Find out what's on.
Use this page to keep track of #IMM2018 where we'll be sharing articles from industry influencers, our annual survey of EHS professionals and details on the campaign's Incident Management webinar. Take part in the conversation!
