Flow chart - environmental incident investigation

If your activities cause pollution or any other type of environmental incident, you’ll want your managers to respond effectively with a prompt investigation. Use our flow chart to organise it.

How does it work?

If there’s an environmental incident, the first thing to do is to initiate an emergency response to minimise any environmental damage. But once the panic is over, it’s important that there’s a systematic investigation, with reports submitted where required.

Our Flow Chart - Environmental Incident Investigation shows the key elements of the process. It’s set out on a single page meaning that once you’ve adapted it to your own requirements it can be easily displayed or kept readily to hand.
