  1. Simple and Effective Feedback Surveys & Incident Reports

    (1) Keep it simple and quick to attract more feedback.
    (2) For instance, we could have multi-choice or single-choice questions on page 1 (change it to cover a bigger picture than we do already) and have a conditional page if people wish to add more comments/improvements if they wish to.

    Hi KD,

    Thanks for the suggestions. We completely agree with “keeping things simple.”

    Although your suggestion for our feedback page may be conceptually simpler, it is quite complicated to implement and we have several other needs for our feedback system, Feel free to review and vote or comment on any of these.

    Separating near miss reporting from full incident reports is a good idea that our Safety Committee needs to evaluate. We recommend merging it with Create More Robust Safety Committee Data Analysis, Please let us know if that is ok with you and we’ll do that. It can also be a separate idea. If you prefer, please feel free to add a new idea for this.
