The report provides Common KPIs for Motor Vehicle Crashes which includes:
- Vehicle rollover
- Personal injury or fatality
It notes that the following (amongst others) should not be reported as crashes:
- Damage to or total loss of a vehicle solely due to environmental conditions or vandalism damage related to the theft of a vehicle.
- An event where there has been no collision or any other damage than to the vehicle itself, this includes but not limited to: engine fire, losing a wheel and brake failure while maintaining control of the vehicle.
There may still be learning opportunities from these events which, in different circumstances, could have resulted in a ‘crash’.
An opportunity to prevent future incidents.
- How do you recognise a ‘Near-Miss’?
- What can be done to avoid the same (or similar) event from occurring?
- Drivers and Passengers must be encouraged to report their concerns – it’s not about blame!
Drivers & Passengers:
- Ensure that all reportable incidents & near-misses are appropriately recorded.
Supervisors, Managers, Leaders:
- Verify that an appropriate incident management (reporting, investigation & resolution) system is in place for land transportation activities or as part of an existing incident management system.
- Provide drivers and passengers with education on what constitutes an incident or near-miss and instruction on what to do (document) in case of an incident or near-miss.
