Toolbox Talk: Incident & Injury Reporting

  • ALL Injuries, no matter how minor, must be reported to your foreman or crew leader immediately. Your foreman or superintendent will direct you to a company approved medical facility.
  • If your foreman believes that your injury requires medical treatment, it will be your responsibility to promptly go to the recommended company approved medical clinic or you will be transported there for treatment. If you have a question, contact the safety team for help. Also, a safety manager should be contacted as soon as possible after any incident or injury.
    • Carl Aukeman 616-325-3598
    • David DeGraaf 616-430-7092
    • Todd Darling 616-291-3978
  • You are responsible to assist the Foreman / Superintendent in completing the Accident Investigation report, including first aid treatment, the root cause of the accident and what can be done to prevent re-occurrences of the injury.
  • Remember, our goal is not to use the reporting of an incident or injury to place blame. Our goal is to learn from each and every incident so we may be proactive in preventing injuries and incidents. If we don’t learn from our incidents, we will be destined to repeat them!
