Safety flash incident feedback

IMCA safety flashes normally comprise between four and seven separate incidents, sometimes with a common theme. These safety flashes are circulated by email to IMCA members as a PDF. However, all published incidents are available to the public on the IMCA website

Feedback – star ratings

Readers can now provide feedback to IMCA, using a ‘star rating’ system. We would encourage all users of IMCA safety flashes to do so. This feedback will enable IMCA to continue to improve the quality of safety flashes and ensure that lessons learned are appropriate and useful to members.

To provide feedback, simply click on the stars on the right side of the screen:
