An important aspect of any accident reporting system is the ability by industry to report information (events, accidents, etc) via two separate channels – the official, mandatory reporting route to governments, and the voluntary, confidential reporting option to a central group.
This was reiterated recently at a meeting held in Saint Lucia in January 2020 –hosted by the FAO and the FISH Safety Foundation. At this meeting, attended by representatives of 7 Caribbean Nations, the group discussed a newly developed regional accident reporting form and system. The group emphasised the need for speedy and full reporting, and further agreed that there were two possible avenues for this reporting to take place, and that both should be considered as viable reporting options.
