How the Incident Reporting Process Works
Our confidential incident reporting system is designed to be user-friendly and to prioritize the confidentiality of those reporting. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of the process:
- Initiating the Report: When you decide to report an incident, you’ll be asked questions to gather all the necessary details about the event. Rest assured, this process is entirely confidential. You’re not obligated to disclose personal details unless you’re comfortable doing so.
- Receiving Your Credentials: You’ll be given a unique Report ID and Passcode after successfully submitting your report. Recording and keeping these details secure is crucial, as they’ll be your keys to accessing the report in the future.
- Follow-Up and Feedback: Your report will then be directed to the appropriate department within our organization. The responsible personnel or counsel will review it diligently. They may update the report’s status or request additional information if needed.
- Checking the Status of Your Report: Curious about where your report stands? You can always check the status or provide additional feedback. Simply call our hotline or visit the designated website link. With your Report ID and Passcode in hand, you’ll gain access to any status updates, questions, or comments related to your report.
An Essential Part of Any Compliance Program
Compliance programs are internal policies and procedures developed to ensure compliance with applicable laws, regulations, rules, contractual obligations, and other stipulations that govern an organization’s actions. They are designed to reduce risk and uphold the reputation of a business.
The success of any compliance program depends on an organization’s ability to monitor and enforce adherence to its compliance mandates. Compliance hotlines play a vital role in this process by providing an anonymous system that employees can use to raise concerns.
