Incident Report Form
It is essential that you report all incidents on Ramblers walks and other activities, even if they result in no or only minor injuries.
The main purposes for completing a form are -
- Insurance record (although we all walk “at our own risk”)
- The ability for Head Office to collate national/regional data regarding any particular problems (eg if a large percentage concerns poorly maintained wooden stiles, they may be able to put pressure on Local Authorities to install (more) metal kissing gates or if a large percentage involve animals such as cattle, this may require better/updated advice for members
- It provides the necessary information to allow us to then report any “infrastructure” defects (eg broken handrails) to the PROW people at WSCC thus helping to ensure that rights of way are kept well maintained.
