Excellent summary my friend,
I have one correction, one clarification and one suggestion.
Correction - I believe that the conduct report needed to be endorsed
only by two individuals not necessarily a marshal. This was for
situations where the marshals conduct was unbecoming.
Clarification - I think it is worth stating that the injury reports
are non prejudicial. Accidents do happen even when everyone is being
careful. We all felt that this was important. If an injury was caused
by dangerous behaviour then this is when a conduct report would be
needed. So you could have a situation that is a true accident, which
generates an injury report alone. In another instance, an injury is
caused by someone's dangerous behaviour, in which case an injury
report plus a conduct report would be needed.
Suggestion - In light of Gerhard's valid point that everybody hates
paperwork, perhaps what is needed is an injury report (for moderate to
severe) and an injury log. The injury log could be simply a journal
type book (heck even a facebook page), where you simply write down
your name, date and type of injury.

If we decide to do a study of the safety of certain disciplines, then
these log books could become the source of raw data.
Thanks for taking on the responsibility of chairing the meeting. It
was really productive.
