Are there examples of violence report forms? In this article you will find forms for reporting violent and aggressive incidents, including examples from the HSE and two schools. We also link to another article from The Key which sets out the requirements for reporting incidents.

HSE example

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has a violent incident report form.

It has space to indicate whether the incident being reported involved:

  • Verbal abuse/threats
  • Theft
  • Physical attack
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • A near miss

It also asks:

What action has been taken to ensure that this type of incident does not reoccur?

A section at the end of the form is for a manager to record whether the incident needed to be reported to the HSE under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) and, if so, the date when this was followed up.
