This incident report form is to be used to report all falls and incidents, which occur at any EA affiliated equestrian activity across Australia. The form may be completed by a coach, official, organising committee member, or medical service provider.
For falls and incidents that result in nil or minor injuries only, the form will require minimal details.
For incidents where the outcome is life threatening or involves a fatality, or any incident that requires an activation of the Serious Incident Management Plan (SIMP), you will be redirected to a more detailed form for completion and EA 'reporting' will receive a priority notification.
For falls and incidents that result in more serious injuries, where an athlete requires transfer for tertiary medical care (but does not require a SIMP activation), you will also be redirected to the more detailed incident form for completion.
For falls or incidents that result in a concussion or suspected concussion, you will be redirected to the EA-Concussion Referral and Return to Sport Form that must be completed and submitted to start the process for the athlete to gain a clearance to return to sport.
Any injury or incident that involves a horse must also be reported and you will be redirected to the Horse Incident Report Form.
In the event that both an athlete and horse are injured, you will need to make separate notifications
