An Incident Report Form is used to record incidents, complaints and near misses that occur and may (or may not) later become the subject of an insurance claim.  The Incident Report Form is useful as the documentation of an event; completed soon after the incident while it is fresh in the memory.  It records information about the incident, witnesses, cause and actions taken to minimise it occurring again.

The completed form should be kept on record within the congregation and a copy sent to Risk & Compliance. This is especially important where a congregation believes an incident may lead to a claim.
