Incident report: Understand how automation increases cross-company security
Employee safety is one of if not the most critical focus for any business outside of sales, especially if a company has a large staff. Thus, the question ‘How does an organization make the reporting process more efficient to cope with an incident and also prevent it from happening in the future?’ remains relevant. Learn how to enhance how your company handles incident reporting with increased efficiency.
Why are incident and accident reports so important?
The procedure itself exists primarily for informing a particular member of a managerial staff about a situation or event. The facts related to the case have to be documented and sent for further investigation within 24 hours after the case occurred. This process might sound simple, but for those who handle it daily can tell you it’s not.Common bottlenecks are as follows:
- Slow turnaround
Speed is one of the key criteria needed to successfully respond to and handle internal issues. The sooner all the evidence facts are collected, the more likely the case will be analyzed properly.
- Delayed responses
The human factor should always be taken into consideration when processes are done manually. People are people, and get distracted or even forget about giving certain documents to certain managers.
- Lost data & information
Just like the first two points, lost data and information are direct results of human-prone error and tendencies. If all the information hasn’t been collected within 24 hours (especially when it comes to serious incident reporting), evidence can get lost or even disappear.
- Recurring incidents
When good policies and great intentions come together with slow processes, it doesn’t matter how many times you go over something. Recurring issues are a huge problem for a lot of companies and require a lot of mundane processing to in the end fix nothing.
However, every single one of those problems can be eliminated with automation. Let’s see how airSlate turns a rusty reporting process into a well-oiled, and automated workflow.
Automated incident reporting: how to implement it
When you decide to move away from old school manual processes in favor of a modern incident report workflow, the first thing to decide on is the software you’ll use. airSlate is quickly dominating the market since its a no-code automation software, which means companies can onboard it without any specific technical knowledge or even an IT department. Specialized Bots, software robots, are key tools to airSlate’s success. But what really takes the cake and sets airSlate apart from its competitors is it provides free online courses that contain all the necessary information users need to automate Flows. Taking the airSlate Incident Reporting Course will teach you how to automate any reporting process quickly and effortlessly whether you’ve worked with an incident reporting system before or not.Set up the airSlate Incident Reporting Flow in no time:
- Create an airSlate account or log in if you already have one.
- Find the Incident Reporting Flow template and add more documents to it if necessary.
- Assign roles to the parties involved: Reporter (submits the report to the manager) and Supervisor (collects all the related data for further analysis).
- Install Bots. These include the Export to Google Sheet Bot, the Send a Slate to Role Bot, and the Email Notification Postfinish Bot.
- Get the result.
The course provides clear video instructions for each step to make setting up our incident reporting software as simple as possible.
The incident and accident report form and what it consists of
The incident reporting form is the main document the whole reporting process starts with. Therefore, let’s have a closer look at what its elements are and how airSlate helps. As a standard, an incident report template is similar across most companies. It must include the following information:
- What happened and how the event unfolded in detail.
- When the situation took place (date and time).
- Where the situation occurred (exact place).
- Who was involved and their explanation.
- The supervisor’s contact details and signature.
With automation, airSlate saves you from inputting the data and details manually, which both minimizes the possibility of human error and speeds up the process. The no-code Bots export the necessary data to Google Sheets, guaranteeing that particular fields will be filled out by specific people and that selected parties will get notifications as soon as the procedure is completed.
In 2020 and beyond, there isn’t an option to handle things without AI anymore. Stop wasting time, money, and human resources on manually running your workflow. Discover all the benefits of automation airSlate has to offer and jump-start your education with its academy courses.
