Accident Reporting


Accident & Incident Reporting

Although the rate of injuries as a result of workplace accidents and incidents is currently on a long-term downward trend, tens of millions of working days are lost every year as the result of poorly managed safety standards and workplace mishaps.

The law mandates that every employer with 10 or more employees must keep a ‘readily accessible’ logbook for work-related accidents and incidents – The Social Security (Claims and Payments) Regulations 1979.

This software facility provides an accident reporting and incident reporting platform for all workplace incidents – from dangerous near-misses to incidents that result in a fatality

Entries must also be preserved for a minimum of 3 years.

What must be recorded?

According to the HSE, records must be kept for:

■ Any work-related incidents that cause death, diagnosed occupational diseases, injuries and near-misses,

■ All work-related injury that results in a worker being unable to do their full range of normal duties for more than 3 consecutive days (including weekends).

RIDDOR

RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013) is the law that requires the ‘Responsible Person’ in an organisation to report the following to the HSE:

■ Any work-related incidents that cause death, diagnosed occupational diseases, ‘specified’ injuries and ‘dangerous’ near-misses — more information about what qualifies for a RIDDOR report can be found here.

■ All work-related injury that results in a worker being unable to do their full range of normal duties for more than 7 consecutive days (including weekends).
