Manage the Incident Event Log

During an incident, you can manually add certain types of entries, including Major Event, Decision Made, Notification, Other/Misc, Process Improvement, Safety Briefing, and Situational Update to the Event Log.

You can also edit the details or description of certain types of entries, but only ones that you manually created. A link appears in the Edits column for entries that you can edit. If changes have been made to the entry since it was created, a History link is displayed that allows you to review the changes.

Additionally, you can comment on any type of entry to add information about issues, questions, or suggestions that occur related to an entry.
