Incidents - records

The whole point of reporting, investigating and analysing incidents is to contribute to the 'corporate knowledge' of an organisation, which gives an understand of how the organisation functions and its weaknesses. A recording system is required to achieve this that:

* Collects information accurately
* Presents information in a consistent form
* Enables analysis of trends
* Records information that might be useful in the future (e.g. to avoid making the same mistakes when designing a new plant)
* Alert others to a problem
