report an Accident, injury or near miss

It is vital that all accidents and near misses are reported to LSESU.

An incident report is a formal recording of the facts related to an accident, injury, or near miss during your student group activities. Its primary purpose is to uncover the circumstances and conditions that led to the event in order to prevent future incidents.

In all accidents, injuries or near miss cases, you must complete the Incident/Accident Report Form below no later than 24 hours after the incident.
