Though we all strive to operate our businesses safely and prevent accidents from happening, collisions are sometimes unavoidable. When one of your employees is involved in a collision, make sure they know what actions they must take to minimize additional losses and maximize safety.
First and foremost, the collision should be reported to authorities. Contact local police or fire departments and obtain appropriate help for fire, injuries, and large spills. Secure the vehicle and the area, and use flashers, emergency triangles or lights to make the collision site highly visible.
Whenever possible get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of witnesses you might need to contact at a later time. Exchange pertinent facts about insurance and vehicle information with other parties. Obtain the vehicle ownerâ€™s name, names of all occupants, names and contact information of insurance carriers, and vehicle information. Never give statements of guilt or make accusations.
Take photos of the other vehicle(s), property damage, road conditions, signs and any other damage. Photos can be extremely useful in a root cause analysis and insurance claim.Â The more pictures the better.
As soon as possible, call your supervisor and provide them with all the facts of the incident.
