Major Incident Report
A major incident report is a document that provides information about the circumstances of an accident or other event to help prevent future occurrences. It's incredibly important to know how to create this document when necessary
Any major incident can put severe pressure on the people, including the incident manager. You can use them to communicate with people outside your organization who might be impacted by your operations (such as regulators) if there has been an accident.
This template prepares your employees, what to do in the event of an emergency, and tips for restoring operations after the crisis has ended.
First 15 minutes :
- The first 15 minutes focus on the details of the issue, impacted stakeholders, creating tickets, and forming the incident response team – these are the basics of incident management.
- After the initial setup is complete, the focus should be on understanding the root cause and identifying any fixes or workarounds.
Recurring Updates :
- After the first hour of the incident, the updates should happen at a more regular interval. Typically, every 30 or 60 minutes, depending on the stakeholder expectation.
Incident Resolution :
- The incident manager should immediately inform the stakeholders that the issue is fixed. Before sending the comms out, the incident response team needs to ensure that the issue is resolved. The incident response team will need to test and verify the fix before the incident is resolved.
