Reporting Property Damage

Learn how to manage property damage reports including incurred costs, accessing incident report details, and how to edit/save/print a report.

Managing Property Damage

Accidents happen occasionally and they are always so unfortunate. Workplaces should have property damage incident report forms that are specifically for recording details of property-related damages that occur at facilities, which can be easily captured in Sospes.

The purpose of these reports is to document the exact details of the occurrences in the workplace when they're still fresh in the minds of the individuals who witnessed the event in question. These forms must be filled out as soon as the incident occurs but after the situation has stabilized to capture the accurate details into the report as possible.

When managing an Incident Report, you can review the information previously submitted through the Supervisor Portal. You also have the capability of adding important details to the report.

Accessing Incident Report Details

From the Report Management menu, the second tile from the left will be labeled Incident Report.

On this tile, you will see the name of the person that submitted the report, their employee ID number, and their job title. Under this information, you will see INCOMPLETE. Once the report has been closed, this will change to COMPLETE. For more information on closing a report, click here 

To see the report details and to add information, click the Incident Report tile. The details of the report will appear on the right of the page.

Managing Property Damage Reports

The first portion of the Incident report will display information that was submitted in the original report. If the report included property damage, you will see the heading Property within the Incident report summary. Below this heading, you will see the information that has already been submitted for the report.
