How to Add a Incident

The “Incidents” module can be used to store information about all your incidents, lost time injuries, product non-conformance, etc.

Adding an Incident

Click on “Incidents” on the main navigation.

You will then see a search system of all incidents already in the Hasmate program.

Click the green “Add” button on the right hand side.

Incident Details Section

This section is made up of the following fields:

  • Incident No – this is automatically generated.
  • Yellow Card No – if you are using our Yellow Card system, you can note down the reference number from the Yellow Card used for this incident.  For information on our Yellow Card system, please click here.
  • Employee – this will show a dropdown of all employees – you can only choose one.  If more than one employee was involved and they were injured in any way, we recommend creating a second incident – so that you can include their specific injury details.  If another employee was involved but were not injured, don’t create another incident – just note in the incident description that they were involved too.
  • Contractor – this will show a dropdown of all contractors – you can only choose one.
  • Description – this is where you can describe the incident in detail.  Who was involved, what happened, how it was dealt with.

  • Reported By – who reported this incident.
  • Associated Risk/Hazard – this will show a dropdown of all active and inactive hazards – you can choose the most appropriate hazard that relates to this incident, if appropriate.

    • Pending – this is what all incidents are set at by default.
    • In Progress
    • Completed – note: this doesn’t make the incident inactive.
  • Incident Date – what day did this incident occur?

  • Employment Period – this is a Master File (not automated based on the employee), and is useful to identify whether employees that have worked there for a long time or short time are having more incidents.  This could help determine whether employee inductions need to be changed, or whether internal training needs to be revisited more often. For more information on updating the Master File, click here.
  • Next Review Date – this will create an alert when this is coming up for expiry.
  • Folder Path/File Path/Image Folder Path – ignore these fields – these are legacy fields from an older version of Hasmate, and will be removed in the near future.
