ANNEX 3 - INCIDENT REPORTING AND ROOT CASE ANALYSIS 1. Scope and Objectives Incidents during training as defined in this annex must be reported to GWO within the timelines stated. No references to personal data shall be included in the incident description. Should GWO share the incident with other stakeholders, no references will be made with regard to the training provider sharing the incident. This instruction applies to all GWO-certified training providers in terms of reporting, investigating and mitigating any event defined by GWO as an “incident or significant incident”. 2. Definitions Incident: An undesired or unplanned event that has caused injury to any person participating in GWO-certified training. This also includes first aid cases. First aid: Medical attention that is usually administered immediately after the injury occurs and at the location where it occurred. It often consists of a single instance of short-term treatment and requires little technology or training to administer. First aid can include the cleaning of minor cuts, scrapes, or scratches; treating a minor burn; applying bandages and dressings; the use of non-prescription medicine; and drinking fluids to relieve heat stress. Significant incident: An undesired or unplanned event that has caused serious injury to any person on a training site participating in GWO-certified training. As a minimum, the following will be considered as a significant incident: a. Fractures, other than to fingers, thumbs and toes: b. Bone fractures diagnosed or confirmed by a doctor, including a break, crack or chip. In some cases, there may be no definitive evidence of a fracture (e.g. if an X-ray is not taken), but the injury will still be deemed as serious if a doctor considers it is likely that the bone has been fractured. Self-diagnosed ‘suspected fractures’ are not reportable. c. Amputation of an arm, hand, finger, thumb, leg, foot or toe. Amputation includes both a traumatic amputation injury at the time of the accident, and surgical amputation following an accident, as a consequence of the injuries sustained. d. Any injury likely to lead to permanent loss of sight or reduction in sight in one or both eyes. e. Any blinding or injuries causing reduction in sight are considered as serious when a doctor diagnoses that the effects are likely to be permanent. f. Any crush injury to the head or torso, causing damage to the brain or internal organs.
