The online incident report is one of the outcomes of the Health & Safety Working Group (H&S WG) which works on improving H&S in the FVL sector and specifically in road transport. One of the first acknowledgements of the H&S WG was that accidents happening in the industry could potentially be avoided by sharing information. The report is focussed on significant accidents or occurrences which had a high potential to result in a significant accident. The report is conceived for accidents happening during loading and unloading operations on trucks.
The aim of the report is to gather as much information as possible about significant accidents happening in the industry and near-misses which could have resulted in significant accidents to issue a yearly report and promote industry-wide knowledge about the most common significant accidents and enhance prevention. Every Logistics Service Provider (LSP), compound and terminal operators including Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can use the report.
