Incident Reporting

NOAA is responsible for providing safe, environmentally compliant, and healthful work places and conditions of employment for all personnel. Prompt investigation and reporting of any incident involving NOAA employees or property will provide information necessary for the systematic identification and correction of safety, health, and environmental hazards.

All incidents shall be reported within 24 hours of the incident occurrence through the NOAA web-based Incident Reporting System. If an incident is considered serious in nature (see the definition on the reporting form) such shall be reported as soon as possible, but no later than 8 working hours of occurrence.
