  • Accident Reporting and Investigation

    Overview This talk will cover: reporting and recording procedures.

    Accident reporting

    1 Health and safety law requires that the following types of accident are reported to the HSE:
    • Fatalities and major accidents
    • Injuries resulting in more than 7 days off work or inability to carry on with normal work
    • Dangerous occurrences

    2 By receiving such accident reports the HSE can establish accident trends, highlight areas of weakness and effectively target preventative measures.
    3 All people on site must ensure that all accidents, no matter how minor, are recorded in the site Accident Book.
    4 In the future, you may want to establish a link between a current health problem and a previous accident to claim compensation.
    5 Accidents to members of the public arising out of site activities must also be reported.

    Accident Investigation

    1 Your employer has a duty to thoroughly investigate all accidents to establish the cause and prevent recurrence.
    2 The HSE will also investigate fatalities and other serious accidents.
    3 If you are involved in an investigation:
    • listen carefully to the questions and remain calm
    • state honestly what you saw or heard
    • do not be afraid to say when you do not know an answer
    4 Remember that the reason for the investigation is to prevent the accident happening again.
