Reporting and Review of Incidents at LBSC

The Management Committe of the LBSC is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for employees and volunteers to ensure the safety of members and visitors.  
As part of that commitment the committee has set in place a process for recording and investigating any incidents, which occur at the club, with a view to 
continually improving the effectiveness of the actions taken in the event of a similar incident.

INCIDENT REPORTING

An Incident report form has been developed to enable members and other witnesses to report any incident which occurs at the club, both on and off the water.  A supply of blank report forms will be held in the First Aid box, which is located in the club canteen.  This supply of forms should be regularly checked and re-stocked as needed.

A club official should provide a blank form to every reliable witness to the incident and request that that person complete and return the form to the Club Commodore as prescribed on the form.

INCIDENT INVESTIGATION and REVIEW

The Commodore should create a file cover for each incident reported and compile any the completed report forms. The Commodore will table the "Incident File" at the next monthly management committee meeting for investigation and review.

The management committee shall review the incident and make recommendations for:

  • Action to be taken to finalise any outstanding matters relating to the incident
  • Changes to operating procedures to improve LBSC response to future incidents
  • Issue of relevant instructions to inform members and volunteers of appropriate actions
  • Seeking advice from agencies or persons with expertise to improve actions in future incidents
  • Acknowledging the actions of members and others who assisted during the incident

Any actions and recommendations of the committee will be recorded in the minutes of the meeting.
