Incident

In ACTS, an Incident is a form that captures health- and safety-related information such as: injuries, hazards, vehicle accidents, property damage, and observations.  Incident forms are highly customizable.  To access the Incident page from the main menu, users may select the Incident module then Incident.

The table below describes the tabs found on the Incident page:

PAGE TABS DESCRIPTION
Information The Information tab contains the Incident form questions and responses.
Incidents This tab lists other Incidents that are associated to the Incident
File The Files tab stores the Files that are associated to the Incident.

Upon opening the Incident page, the "Select the type of incident" dialog box will appear.  Users may select one "Form Type" then click OK.

The Information tab will vary depending on the "Form Type" a user selects.  Once the form opens, the user may enter data.  Note: All fields that require data are indicated by an asterisk (*).  Select the Save icon in the main menu.

Entering Data

  1. For list data, select the "Add a new row" icon (i.e., the icon shaped like a plus sign).  If data for multiple rows has been added, users may select multiple items by pressing and holding CTRL and selecting the items.  Users can delete a row by selecting the icon that looks like a trashcan, and they can insert a row by selecting the arrow icon.  For a visual list of the most common icons in ACTS, click here
