This session offers a useful format to guide officers in writing accident/injury reports that benefit injured personnel and provide relevant details for admin and insurance companies. Participants will critique accident reports and will then practice writing a sample or real accident investigation report. Depending on the length of the session, some relevant grammar and spelling issues will be covered. The content can be customized to match the host department’s current or pending templates.

Length of Session: 3-4 hours

Resources for attendees:

  • Participants receive a handout that can serve as a long-term reference, both for the content covered in class and with a list of resources that allow them to continue building on the lessons learned.
  • Sample template for accident investigative reports
  • Six key questions to steer an accident investigation.
