The Health & Safety Working Group (H&S WG) is glad to announce that the incident reporting website which was launched by ECG at the end of 2019 is now live with many new features and improvements. Users can now create an account and access all the accidents uploaded, download PDF and Excel versions of the accidents branded with the ECG logo and generally have a more user-friendly experience.
The website was created to gather information about significant accidents or near-misses which had a high potential to result in a significant accident. The aim is to create a database of accidents which can be analysed and used to share insightful information helping the industry to become safer. Only ECG has access to the accidents which are uploaded on the website. For analysis purposes, data which contain sensitive information such as company name, location, contact details of the person filling in the accidents will not be used or divulged to other parties. The users’ anonymity is guaranteed.
Thanks to the support of our members we have gathered a number of accidents for 2019 which will allow the H&S WG to issue its first yearly report containing useful information and recommendations. We invite our members and non-members who operate trucks and have not provided any input so far, to support us and fill in their 2020 accidents.
