Incident Types

Overview

Core allows you to create a list of HR items such as employee journals and incident types. These lists are then used to create and track employee journals and incidents.

Ensuring employee safety is an essential component of human resource management. It is possible that events occur at the workplace that have legal implications–for example, injury, acts of violence, or harassment of employees. Incidents can also be regarded as events that can result in a crisis, if not handled properly or on time. The seriousness of these issues entails that a record is maintained and the incidents are reported to the legal authorities.

Core HR helps you keep track of incidents, ensuring that your company fulfills its legal obligations. It also helps you decide on what actions to take. You can create and maintain a list of incident types that can be used to flag employee incidents. Some of the common incidents are injury, accident, theft, DUI, and so on. You can create any number of incident types and then use them while creating employee incidents. Click here to watch a video on managing employee incidents in Core.
