Reporting accidents, incidents and engineering/maintenance occurrences is an important aspect of managing risk in gliding. The BGA is fortunate in that we have a good reporting culture which provides really helpful data.
The BGA accident/incident report form was last published in 2005 and was in need of updating. The new form is available here.
The main differences from the 2005 form are as follows:
- New Introduction
- One-page form instead of a two-page form
- Like fields are brought together with fewer fields
- Many fields can be completed with one click
A prototype of the new form has been used by 9 clubs for a year. The feedback was positive. Proposals for improvement have been incorporated into the new form.
Please advise the BGA office if any significant problem is encountered in using the new form.
