    Excellent program outline especially with regards to a safety review kit. I will be setting up such an item for any future incidents. Can you suggest where to obtain pre-printed forms, hopefully in duplicate or triplicate? Again, outstanding article.

      Hey Roger,

      Thanks for your feedback on the post! Companies often create their own version of an incident investigation form so that they can capture exactly the information that they want or need from an incident. Your insurance carrier is a good resource for helping to determine the exact information to capture following an incident.

      The National Safety Council has a pretty succinct version on their website that can be printed here.

      I’m not aware of anyone who provides pre-printed duplicate or triplicate versions. Most facilities will simply scan the original for distribution to whoever needs them. Some facilities even have the paperless form on their laptops or tablet.
