Incident Reporting & near misses

Tue 13 March 2018

“The information you give us could help keep others safe”

In 2017 British Canoeing formed a UK wide Safety Panel to improve safety systems, work with partner agencies and provide guidance.

Included in this work, is the monitoring of incidents and near misses, not just injury and accidents but all incidents whether access disputes, environmental, or due to other water users etc.

It is a single UK wide incident reporting system that enables you to record your experiences and request support and assistance if there is a problem that needs to be resolved. 

The information we have is only as good as the information submitted. So if you, your club or group, have been involved in an incident or near miss tell us what has happened. The information you give us could help keep others safe.
