Confidential reporting (CIRAS)

What is CIRAS?

CIRAS External link, the Confidential Incident Reporting and Analysis System, operates as a totally independent scheme.

CIRAS not only captures health, safety, security and environmental concerns raised by individual workers, it also seeks a constructive response from the companies concerned.

Lessons learnt are then shared with industry by means of various CIRAS publications, including The CIRAS newsletter External link in the CIRAS HUB External link.

Throughout this process CIRAS always ensures that the confidentiality of the individual raising the concern is protected. CIRAS is completely independent, entirely confidential, and helps make the industry even safer.
