Identifying causes of incidents: Collision reporting, investigation and review
As a best practice, your company should create and implement formal procedures for reporting, recording and analyzing vehicle-related incidents (collisions, convictions, moving violations, etc.). This will help you identify the cause of the incident and take steps to prevent it from reoccurring.
Each vehicle should contain an information packet with instructions and forms for use in case of an incident. The initial actions at the scene are often critical to the outcome of the incident, but drivers may be under extreme stress at the time. This is why the procedures need to be clear, concise and easy to understand.
