Incident Alerts

Incident alerts are submitted by companies from across the industry. They explain how accidents or near hits have occurred and make recommendations as to how this can be avoided in the future. By sharing this knowledge companies will be able to identify similar potential hazards in their own operations and take appropriate action to minimise these risks. Users can register to receive e-mail alerts when new incident alerts have been added to the system.
