Rapid Incident Reporting was implemented to centralise the existing multiple incident reporting methods in place. Workplace incident reporting varied from first aid injuries to site hazards and are now all reported via the online incident reporting system.
“The system is centralising for Garvan what used to be a number of separate incident reporting systems for hazard/near miss, injury/illness, first aid (work related & non-work related), building/emergency & security incidents . It is so much easier to track all incidents from our sites to ensure that investigations and corrective actions are completed. The reporting ability is also invaluable for quick access to facts and figures for meetings and inclusion into other regular WHS reports.”

Rapid Induct was launched in 2008 and initially set up by the Health and Safety Administrators for the Institute. Since that time, the system has been expanded to now incorporate over 20 courses written by various Site Administrators according to their various site or departmental training needs. Further to this, contractor documents are collected through the Document Upload feature and allows Garvan to manage and track the insurance and workcover certifications provided by their contractor workforce.
“Garvan has been using Rapid Induct since 2008 and it has been one of the best things we have implemented to improve our provision of training & induction. The Health & Safety Team were the first administrators of Rapid Induct for safety inductions at Garvan but now there are multiple administrators from various areas of the Institute developing and issuing courses. Our course tally is 20 so far and counting! 1635 courses have been completed to date. In addition to the online course function, we also heavily use the Training Manager, Document Upload and Manage Contractors Add on features.”
