Have you ever been through a lot of toxic situations inside the workplace? But you have no idea on how to deal with it or how to report this type of situation? If you have answered both questions, here is something I can help you with. First of all, toxic behaviour in the workplace should not be ignored. Second, these types of behaviors can lead to unwanted attention in the workplace. Lastly, there is a way for you to report this to your supervisor. In the form of a job incident report.
A job is the act of doing something for someone. A person who is paid to do regular work for someone else. Something that is someone’s chore or responsibility. A type of work that a person does regularly and gets paid with money for it. To improve or to repair something that is broken.
The term job incident or better known as a work accident, is defined as something that had occurred during the course of work. Something that has been done to someone by someone or something that could lead to physical or mental injury. A job incident can occur anytime and anywhere in the office. It could also cause physical or mental injury to someone working.
Job incident report in simple terms means to write down a report of the incident that happened during work. To write about something that had occurred. To narrate an incident that caused mental or physical pain to someone by someone or something. To give out evidence to support the matter through photos, words and narrations from key witnesses during the incident.
Why is it so important to write down a job incident report? The reason for this is to describe the event. To narrate what went down during the occurrence in the office. To give out proof and hard evidence to support the claims of others. This report is also an official document that can be used to investigate any wrong doing throughout the incident in question. This also provides an evaluation and the step by step method to avoid anything that could repeat the incident in the near future.
Let us say you were called to your supervisor’s office today. The supervisor is asking for your say of the incident that happened during work. Your first response may be to panic and say you did not know what happened. The supervisor looks at you knowing you know something but you are not willing to tell them. Rather than making the supervisor believe that you are hiding the culprit of the incident at work, you should help make a report of your own. By being familiar with the following tips below.
It is very helpful to make an incident report concerning your job. This can also help you communicate properly with your supervisor about your concerns and needs in the workplace.
Yes. As your supervisor will not tell anyone who made a report. Your information will be kept in private.
It does not have to be too long or too short. As you write your narrative down, remember to stick to facts.
As much as a workplace can get toxic sometimes, it does not mean you have to suffer in silence. Writing an incident report can also be of help for you. It is a meaningful way to communicate your needs to your supervisor without having to make a huge scene.
